HOME: Hadfield lands safely on time in Kazakhstan

At 10:31pm our time, Sarnia-born Astronaut Chris Hadfield and his crew mates from the International Space Station landed in Kazakhstan this evening. Hadfield was the last out of the Soyuz space capsule which took about four hours to return from the ISS. It took them two-days to get to the station six months ago. Prime Minister Stephen Harper took to Twitter to mark the moment. "I'm pleased to see that @Cmdr_Hadfield is safely back on planet earth. A reminder that our potential is limitless when we aim high."
