Watch NASA's record-breaking astronaut return home on a Russian spacecraft

An astronaut who has broken the U.S. record for the longest consecutive time spent in space will return on Wednesday

Despite the war between Russia and Ukraine continuing to foment, NASA's Mark Vande Hei will ride back on a Russian space agency spacecraft with two cosmonauts

NASA administrator Bill Nelson recently said he expected Vande Hei's flight to happen "without a hitch."

That professionalism runs counter to the publicity stunts pulled by Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos.

After landing this week, Vande Hei and the cosmonauts will split up, which is a standard crew practice, not a sign of more geopolitical tension.

The astronaut will return to his home in Houston, and the Russian spacefarers will fly back to their training base in Star City, Russia.
