JSC2010-E-167394 (25 Sept. 2010) --- At Chkalovsky Airbase outside Star City, Russia, Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov, Expedition 24 commander, is warmly greeted by his wife and daughter after descending the plane that flew him and flight engineer Mikhail Kornienko from Karaganda, Kazakhstan back to their training base at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center Sept. 25, 2010. The reunion took place just hours after the cosmonaut pair 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, NASA astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson, who landed with them, flew home on a NASA plane to the Johnson Space Center. Photo credit: NASA/Stephanie Stoll
