Soyuz MS-04 undocking and landing

Soyuz MS-04 will undock from the International Space Station and land in Kazakhstan. Coming back to Earth are Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin and NASA astronauts Jack Fischer and Peggy Whitson. Yurchikhin and Fischer have been in space since April 2017 while Whitson has been living on the ISS since November 2016.

Whitson launched to the ISS in Soyuz MS-03, but was granted a three-month extension in part because Soyuz MS-04 only launched two people to the station and an extra seat was available for landing.
