Kanai to return to earth from space station

"We're feeling a little exhausted, but at the same time, we are proud to have accomplished this and are glad to be back on Earth", he said.

Three members of the International Space Station Expedition 55 crew, including NASA astronaut Scott Tingle, returned to Earth Sunday after 168 days of living and working in low-Earth orbit.

Tingle and Kanai were to travel to the Kazakh city of Karaganda before leaving for Houston, Texas.

Roscosmos posted on Thursday a video of Shkaplerov and fellow cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev practicing in the ISS with an Adidas Telstar 18 football.

Kanai, a 41-year-old former Maritime Self-Defense Force doctor, had drawn worldwide attention for claiming on Twitter to have grown 9 centimeters taller after three weeks at the space station due to the absence of gravity.

The launch and docking to the space station will be broadcast on NASA Television.

Second-placed Messi made $111m (£83.1m) thanks to his $84m (£62.9m) in salary and winnings and endorsements worth $27m (£20.2m). Baseball (14 athletes), Soccer (9), Golf (5), boxing, tennis (4 each) and racing (3) also landed multiple stars in the top 100.

Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency made life on the space station more accessible to Japanese-speakers by tweeting in the language most days.

Scott Tingle, who was on his first flight, experienced a spacewalk with the mission to replace the hand of one of the station's robotic arms.

Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev and his two US colleagues Andrew Feustel and Richard Arnold are still working on the ISS.

The spacecraft will be carrying a crew of three to the world's sole orbiter, namely Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev, US astronaut Serena Aunon and German astronaut Alexander Gerst.

Space research has been one of the few areas of global cooperation between Russian Federation and the West that has not been wrecked by the Ukraine crisis.
