SOYUZ MS-13 RETURN TO EARTH, Feb 6, 2020, Kazakhstan, undocking 12:50 am ET, landing 4:12 am ET

(NASA TV coverage begins 12:15 am ET)

The Soyuz MS-13 spacecraft will return to Earth on February 6, 2020.  It will undock from ISS at 12:50 am ET (refined from 12:49), with landing in Kazakhstan at 4:12 am ET [refined from 4:14 am ET].  NASA TV coverage begins at 12:15 am ET.

Coming home are:

  • Alexander Skvortsov (Roscosmos)
  • Christina Koch (NASA)
  • Luca Parmitano (ESA)

Koch launched on March 14, 2019 on Soyuz MS-12.  Instead of returning on Soyuz MS-12 in October 2019, her mission was extended to accommodate Russia’s need to fly a spaceflight participant from the United Arab Emirates.  Therefore she is returning on Soyuz MS-13 instead and setting a new duration record for a single spaceflight by a woman — 328 days.  That is just 12 days short of the longest single spaceflight by any American.  Scott Kelly was in space for 340 days.  Peggy Whitson will continue to hold the record for longest cumulative time in space for a woman (over several flights): 665 days.
