Anousheh Ansari, the world's first female paying space tourist, began her trip back to Earth early Friday along with a Russian cosmonaut and an American astronaut. Ansari, Pavel Vinogradov and Jeffrey Williams left the international space station aboard a cramped Russian Soyuz capsule for a high-speed journey that was to end a little over than three hours later on the vast steppes of Kazakhstan. Video footage on a large screen at Russian mission control in Korloyov, just outside Moscow, showed a view of the ISS as the capsule pulled away against the black backdrop of outer space.
