ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: A Soyuz capsule carrying a Russian, an American and a Briton from the International Space Station (ISS) made a safe parachute landing on the steppe near the Kazakh city of Zhezkazgan on Saturday (June 18). The three-man crew which includes Tim Peake, the first astronaut representing the British government, departed the station about three hours earlier after spending half a year in Earth's orbit. Peake describes his time aboard the ISS as a "life-changing experience" and added, "I'm going to miss the view definitely." Alongside Peake, who smiled as he was being examined by flight surgeons, were commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA astronaut Tim Kopra.
