It broke the record of his country for the time spent in space. The descent module of Russia's Soyuz MS-04 spacecraft with three people on board re-entered the earth's atmosphere on Sunday, a Russian Mission Control center official told TASS. They will be joined by two Americans and a Russian following liftoff from Kazakhstan on September 12.

Images from the TV channel of NASA showed the Soyuz capsule touching down in the steppes of Kazakhstan.

The Soyuz MS-04 manned spacecraft with three crew members of the International Space Station (ISS) has undocked from the ISS, the Mission Control Center said Sunday. Her career 10 spacewalks mark another USA record.

Whitson, however, set multiple other records while in orbit.

Once back in Houston, both Whitson and Fischer will undergo a variety of health tests to help NASA scientists better understand the physiological effects of spending months at a time in microgravity.
