Astronaut Michael Hopkins from NASA reacts as he is helped out of the Soyuz TMA-10M capsule shortly after the landing in a remote area southeast of the town of Zhezkazgan in central Kazakhstan, March 11, 2014. An American astronaut and two Russians who carried a Sochi Olympic torch into open space landed safely and on time on Tuesday in Kazakhstan, defying bad weather and ending their 166-day mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Inside the capsule were former ISS commander Oleg Kotov and flight engineers Sergei Ryazansky and Michael Hopkins from NASA. The trio launched together into space on September 25.
