Russian spacecraft back on earth

A Russian Soyuz spacecraft has landed safely back in Russia after a trip to the International Space Station.

The capsule brought three astronauts back home after they spent 165 days at the space station.

The astronauts have been in space for so long that their muscles had weaken because of zero gravity.

This meant they needed wheelchair's to help them off the capsule.

They touched down this morning and had to land the craft it's side because of windy conditions.

The Soyuz is now the only way astronauts can get to the International Space Station. America ended their shuttle programme last year.
