MOSCOW, June 3 (Xinhua) -- The Russian Soyuz MS-07 spacecraft with three members of the International Space Station (ISS) crew successfully landed in Kazakhstan's steppe on Sunday, the Russian state space corporation Roscosmos said.
Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, U.S. astronaut Scott Tingle and Japanese astronaut Norishige Kanai feel well after spending 168 days in orbit, it said in a press release.
During their stay at the ISS, the crew carried out scientific and applied research and installed various equipment.
They brought back to Earth a football that will be used in the opening match of the FIFA 2018 World Cup on June 14 in Moscow, according to an Interfax report.
Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev and his two U.S. colleagues Andrew Feustel and Richard Arnold are still working on the ISS.
