Returning to Earth from the International Space Station

We’re a few years away from civilian space flights, so the next best thing is experiencing the dramatic return to earth through video. Released this week by the European Space Agency, this video features landing footage and interviews with former astronauts to give you an insider’s look at the ‘undocking, reentry, and landing of the Soyuz capsule’.

Bumpy? You bet! Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli describes re-entering Earth’s atmosphere as ‘hammering here and there, up and down. And so every few milliseconds, the spacecraft was shaking. There’s a BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! It felt really interesting, actually’.
