Expedition 38 recently came to a close, and Michael Hopkins, Oleg Kotov and Sergy Gyazanskiy left the ISS on board a Soyuz.  As you can see in the video above, the Soyuz undocked flawlessly and departed from the space station, and then commenced with a nearly five- minute deorbit burn before descending into Kazakhstan.

As seen in the picture above, the men arrived back on Earth safe and sound.  Overall, the men were aboard the ISS for about five and a half months.
