On April 17, after a long flight, the crew of the Soyuz MS-15 manned spacecraft, consisting of Russian astronaut Oleg Skrypochka, NASA astronauts Andrew Morgan and Jessica Meir, safely returned to Earth.

A ship landed in the steppes of the Karaganda region of Kazakhstan. As part of the celebrations marking the 90th anniversary of Moscow Aviation Institute, acting director of the MAI Voskhod branch in Baikonur, Anatoly Prosochkin, and graduate of Department 608 "Design of Aerohydrocosmic Systems" Sergei Samoilenko met the crew returning from space, and organized a photo-video shooting with the branch’s MAI flag on the background of the descent vehicle.
