He and other crewmates spent 196 days in the Earth’s orbit on the International Space Station.
NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and cosmonauts Ivan Vagner and Anatoly Ivanishin have returned safely back to Earth, the space agency said Thursday. They’d been working in Earth’s orbit for 196 days aboard the International Space Station.
“The final spacewalk was the 10th for both astronauts, making them two of only four US astronauts to complete 10 spacewalks,” NASA said in a release.
While in space, Cassidy shared a collection of photos of an annular “ring of fire” solar eclipse that showed the moon’s shadow darkening Earth.
