On 1 July 2012, ESA astronaut André Kuipers, NASA astronaut Don Pettit and Russian Cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko returned to Earth in their Soyuz capsule. It marks the end of PromISSe, the fourth ESA long-duration mission aboard the International Space Station.
The B roll includes images of their farewell ceremony in the ISS with hatch closure and then undocking, followed by the Soyuz capsule landing with the crew disembarking as well as comments from André Kuipers and Thomas Reiter, the Director of Human Spaceflight.
