MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The reentry capsule of the Russian Soyuz MS-20 spacecraft with Japanese space tourists Yusaku Maezawa and Yozo Hirano, as well as Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin, has landed in Kazakhstan, a Sputnik correspondent reports from Russian mission control.
The capsule landed at around 6:16 a.m. Moscow time on Monday (03:16 GMT), 148 kilometres (92 miles) southeast of the Kazakh city of Zhezqazghan.
Less than an hour later, the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, said that the Soyuz crew was helped out of the reentry capsule and all three men were feeling well.

"The search and rescue service specialists completed the evacuation of the entire crew of the # SoyuzMS20 manned spacecraft from the descent vehicle. Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin and spaceflight participants @yousuck2020 [Yusaku Maezawa] and Yozo Hirano feel good!", Roscosmos said on Twitter.
