"It feels fantastic" to be back on Earth, said British astronaut Tim Peake as he arrived in Karaganda.
After returning to Earth in the Soyuz capsule, Major Peake, along with American Nasa astronaut Colonel Tim Kopra and Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, were flown by helicopter to the Kazakh city where they were given gifts of bread and salt and a traditional Kazakh hat.
When they have received their gifts the trio will then go their separate ways, Major Peake taking a plane to the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany, Colonel Kopra heading for Houston, Texas, and Mr Malenchenko travelling to Star City, near Moscow.
