Russian-US crew, space tourist return to Earth

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian Soyuz capsule touched down in
Kazakhstan on Tuesday, bringing a Russian cosmonaut, a U.S.
astronaut and an American space tourist back to Earth, mission
control said.

The two-man crew returned home after half a year in orbit
on the International Space Station. Millionaire scientist and
entrepreneur Gregory Olsen spent just over a week with them in
space, paying a reported $20 million for the trip.
