ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli landed back on Earth this morning to conclude his 159-day mission to the International Space Station.

Paolo’s MagISStra mission, the third long mission by a European astronaut on the Station, came to end at 04:27 CEST (02:27 GMT) on the steppes of Kazakhstan as the Soyuz TMA-20 spacecraft fired its retrorockets for a soft landing.

  1. bentornato a Paolo Nespoli, seguivamo le tue imprese che hai saputo condire a volte con simpatia e freschezza. Paolo Nespoli ha doti da comunicatore che non ho riscontrato in Roberto Vittori. Tutte le mattine mi collegavo con il sito della NASA per vedere nuovi video e anche per fare il tracking della stazione dove si trovava ora lo sto facendo di meno non me ne voglia Roberto Vittori.

  2. @UncleKennybobs Maybe its a possible experiment in combination with the Mars500 studies. You know judging the effects of long-term microgravity. He really seems very tired.
