Soyuz TMA-21 capsule successfully landed in Kazakhstan, RIA Novosti reports.

Soyuz TMA-21 craft undocked from the orbiter with two Russians (Andrey Borisenko and Aleksandr Samokutyayev) and a NASA astronaut (Ronald Garan) on board. The capsule landed in the area close to the planned one. The crew is in a good condition, Flights Control Center said citing the officer of search and rescue team.

Landing process was controlled by three planes (An-26 and An-12), 14 MI-8 helicopters and 7 evacuation vehicles. After a medical check-up in a mobile hospital astronauts were sent to Karaganda airport for a flight to Chkalovskiy airport.

The landing was scheduled for 08:00 a.m. Moscow time 149 km south-east of Zhezkazgan. Initially landing of Soyuz TMA-21 was scheduled for September 8 but was delayed because of emergency launch of Progress M-12M craft.
