Canadian Chris Hadfield, Russian Roman Romanenko, and American Tom Marshburn rest after leaving the Russian Soyuz space capsule following its landing in Kazakhstan on May 15.

A Soyuz space capsule carrying a three-man international crew has landed safely on the steppes of Kazakhstan.

Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency, Tom Marshburn of NASA and Roman Romanenko of the Russian space agency landed as planned southeast of the town of Dzhezkazgan on May 14 following a 146-day mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

Hadfield made history one day earlier when he released the first music video shot in space, turning an astronaut into an overnight music sensation with his zero-gravity version of David Bowie's hit "Space Oddity."

A three-man U.S.-Russian crew is staying on the space station to be joined in two weeks by the next trio of astronauts.
