Returning to Earth Aboard Soyuz

Astronaut and blogger Ron Garan blogs of his experiences aboard the ISS and his return to Earth. Shortly before Garan was to return home he writes:
  • (I) had a video-conference from the International Space Station with astronaut Scott Kelly who told me about his experience, his own ride home from the ISS on a Soyuz spacecraft was like.
Kelly said and Garan attests to the description of the return flight as:
  • plunging over Niagara Falls in a burning barrel
Ron's page describing final preparations for the return aboard the Russian work horse. There are an amazing amount of things that must be done.
