A NASA astronaut and two Roscosmos cosmonauts land safety in Kazakhstan, only a few hours after undocking from the International Space Station. They left behind the Expedition 49 crew members, Commander Anatoly Ivanishin of Roscosmos, NASA astronaut Kate Rubins, and astronaut Takuya Onishi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. They will operate the station for more than two weeks until the arrival of three new crew members. (Cover Photo: Reuters)
