The crew of the Soyuz TMA-15M spacecraft with the call sign "Astray" returned to Earth.

Anton Shkaplerov, Samantha Cristoforetti and Terry Virts were supposed to return in May, however, as a result of the accident of the Progress truck, they were delayed on the ISS for another month.

For Samantha, the 200-day expedition turned into a surprise: Italy's first female cosmonaut returned to Earth as the record holder for the continuous stay of women in space, exceeding the record of American Sunita Williams by several days.
