Astronauts in Russian capsule land safely with World Cup football after 168-day mission to ISS

Asstronauts from ISS return with World Cup ballThree astronauts from the United States, Russia and Japan safely landed in Kazakhstan following a 168-day mission to the International Space Station.

A Russian Soyuz space capsule carrying NASA astronaut Scott Tingle, Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Anton Shkaplerov of Russia's Roscosmos space program, parachuted into the remote town of Dzhezkazgan  at at 6:39 p.m. local time (8:39 a.m. EDT) Sunday. All three men were safely removed from the capsule within 30 minutes.

Shkaplerov, the first to be carried out of the capsule, told reporters "we are a bit tired but happy with what we have accomplished and happy to be back on Earth. We are glad the weather is sunny," the BBC reported.

After medical examinations, Shkaplerov was heading to Moscow, carrying a football that may be used in the 2018 World Cup that begins in Russia on June 14, according to Agence France-Presse. Tingle and Kanai were heading to Houston, Texas, the BBC reported.
