Ahhh…’memories…pressed between the pages of my mind’. Welcome home Sasha, Andrey and Ronnie! The journey back to planet Earth in this spacecraft is unforgettable! Love this photo of the capsule just before touchdown, with the moon as a backdrop, from the Master, Bill Ingalls – a lifetime of memories and dreams of the wonders to come. Great to be back with you, my friends – Grace and Peace!  #NASATweetup  #SpaceTweeps
