Astronauts are back from space – level 2

Astronauts are back from space – level 2

22-03-2013 06:00

Three International Space Station astronauts have returned to Earth safely. They landed in Kazakhstan a day later than planned because of bad weather. One American and two Russian astronauts spent 144 days in the Space Station and travelled about 61 million miles in space.

Their way back took just under four hours. NASA reported that returning to Earth had gone perfectly. The astronauts are doing well and they will be transported to a post-flight rehabilitation centre.

Interesting words: post-flight (after flight), rehabilitation (time when somebody helps you have a better condition again).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
