ALMATY, Kazakhstan – A Russian Soyuz capsule carrying three astronauts back from a six-month mission on the International Space Station has touched down safely in the central steppes of Kazakhstan on Saturday.

The return to earth of American astronaut Tracy Caldwell-Dyson and Russia's Alexander Skvortsov and Mikhail Kornienko had been delayed a day. Technical glitches had postponed undocking of the spacecraft.

A hover of Russian recovery helicopters took flight ahead of the landing southeast of the remote central Kazakh town of Arkalyk to intercept the capsule.

Signaling errors in the onboard computer system and a malfunction with hooks and latches on the space station side of the capsule delayed the undocking.
