The three astronauts who just landed on Earth after completing their mission at the International Space Station have now been extracted from their capsule.

A live stream by US space agency Nasa and Russian space agency Roscosmos showed the three astronauts being extracted.

Hazzaa had flown to the ISS last Wednesday on board the Soyuz MS-12 mission, S61 Expedition.

AlMansoori, father of four and a former military fighter jet pilot, rocketed off at 5.57pm (UAE time) on September 25 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome's Gagarin Launch Pad.

Hazzaa said he conducted at least 16 experiments, including Fluidics (to observe how liquids move in weightlessness), time perception, Osteology (to study his bone condition, body composition and endocrine system at the space lab), time perception, and how to use the gyroscopic smart camera in microgravity. All those experiments will significantly contribute to UAE's next stop in Space journey, which is Mars mission.
