Watch live as NASA astronaut Frank Rubio, the new record holder for the longest single U.S. spaceflight, returns home from the International Space Station. The Soyuz MS-23 spacecraft with Rubio and Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin aboard is scheduled to land on the steppe of Kazakhstan on Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 7:17 a.m. EDT (1117 UTC).
The trio will return after 371 days in space and a mission spanning 157.4 million miles (253.3 million km) and 5,963 orbits of the Earth. Rubio became the new record holder for the longest single United States spaceflight on Sept. 11, after he surpassed the former record of 355 days held by NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei.
