Expedition 10 crew and ESA Astronaut Roberto Vittori Expedition 10 Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov (seated, center) flashes a triumphant grin while answering a question from the media. Sharipov, along with Commander Leroy Chiao, right, and European Space Agency Astronaut Roberto Vittori, had just returned to Earth. They landed in a Soyuz TMA spacecraft on April 25, 2005 (Kazakhstan time), northeast of the Kazakhstan town of Arkalyk to end a six-month mission on the International Space Station for Chiao and Sharipov and a 10-day mission for Vittori.
