Astronauts are back from space – level 1

Three astronauts came back to Earth. They came from the Space Station. They landed in Kazakhstan a day later than planned because the weather was bad. One American and two Russian astronauts were 144 days in the Space Station. They travelled 61 million miles in space.

Their way back was four hours long. NASA said that the way back to Earth was perfect. The astronauts are OK. They will go to a special centre. They need to get stronger bodies after many days in space.

Interesting words: space (universe), land (come to land from the sky).
