NASA astronaut Kevin Ford and Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Evgeny Tarelkin were successfully landed aboard the Soyuz TMA-06M spacecraft at 0305 GMT on 16 March near Arkalyk in Kazakhstan. The landing took place a day late after a snow storm had delayed their landing from the day before. Even on the landing day, snow made it difficult for some of the rescue helicopters to reach the capsule. The night previously, the capsule had undocked from the International Space Station at 2343 GMT on 15 March.
