The historic space flight comes to an end… The first Turkish astronaut Alper Gezeravcı returns to Earth.

After the ceremony for Gezeravcı and the three accompanying astronauts, all eyes turned to the return journey.

The team including Gezeravcı will leave the International Space Station tomorrow afternoon to return to Earth. The journey of the capsule that will bring the astronauts back to Earth is expected to take about 12 to 13 hours.
