Live coverage of NASA astronaut Loral O’Hara, Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Novitskiy, and spaceflight participant Marina Vasilevskaya of Belarus’ return to Earth is underway.

The trio began the journey back to Earth in the early morning hours when the Soyuz MS-24 spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station’s Rassvet module at 11:54 p.m. EDT. The trio are heading for a parachute-assisted landing on the steppe of Kazakhstan, southeast of the remote town of Dzhezkazgan, at 3:17 a.m. (12:17 p.m. Kazakhstan time).

Expedition 71 has formally begun aboard the station with NASA astronauts Michael Barratt, Matthew Dominick, Tracy Dyson, and Jeannette Epps as well as Roscosmos cosmonauts Nikolai Chub, Alexander Grebenkin, and Oleg Kononenko.
