JSC2010-E-167391 (25 Sept. 2010) --- At Chkalovsky Airbase outside Star City, Russia, Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov (right, in blue flight suit), Expedition 24 commander, and Mikhail Kornienko, flight engineer, are greeted by Russian space officials after descending the plane that flew them from Karaganda, Kazakhstan back to their training base at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center Sept. 25, 2010. The scene was recorded just hours after the crew members returned to Earth in the Soyuz TMA-18 spacecraft to wrap up 176 days in space, including 174 days on the International Space Station. Their crewmate, Tracy Caldwell Dyson, who landed with them, flew home on a NASA plane to the Johnson Space Center. Photo credit: NASA/Mark Bowman.
