Whitson touched down in Kazakhstan at 9:21 p.m. EDT on Saturday aboard a Soyuz capsule. Whitson was joined for the trip home by NASA colleague Jack Fischer and cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikin of Roscosmos.

Whitson's 288-day mission is the record for most consecutive days spent in space by an American. She has now spent a cumulative of 665 days in space, also a record for U.S. astronauts.

While aboard ISS, Whitson executed four spacewalks. Her career 10 spacewalks mark another U.S. record. Across three space station missions, Whitson has spent 60 hours and 21 minutes outside ISS.
