Astronaut Chris Cassidy and cosmonauts Pavel Vinogradov and Alexander Misurkin safely returned to Earth after departing the ISS Tuesday night following 166 days in space.  The three men blasted off from the Baikonur cosmodrome on 29 March. Their return flight to Earth took just over three hours.   Now that the three crew members have returned, Misurkin and Cassidy will undergo various tests that could provide information for future flights. Vinogradov, at 60 the oldest human ever to land in a Soyuz vehicle, will not take part in the same experiments. (Image Credit: NASA)
