Space Tourist and Expedition 11 Crew Return

10/11/2005 1:25 PM

A U.S. scientist who paid $20 million to visit the International Space Station (ISS) is back on Earth, along with two astronauts, after their Soyuz spacecraft touched down safely on the steppes of Kazakhstan Monday. Gregory Olsen, the third space tourist to visit the ISS, and the two-astronaut crew of ISS Expedition 11 landed their Soyuz TMA-6 spacecraft right on time today at 9:09 p.m. EDT (0109 Oct. 11). "I feel great," Olsen said as he finished an apple while recovery workers conducted medical checks. "I can't wait to walk around and have some real food, and take a shower."
