Soyuz lands off-target

Soyuz lands off-target

(2)A Russian Soyuz capsule returned to Earth Saturday, but missed its planned landing point by 260 miles. The crew -- Yi So-yeon (South Korea's first astronaut), Yuri Malenchenko (Russia) and Peggy Whitson (America) -- are safe, but were subjected to severe G-forces during a steeper than normal 'ballistic re-entry,' a spokesman for mission control said. More info and video report available at BBC News(1).
