Robert PearlmanEuropean Space Agency (ESA) video release
Soyuz undocking, reentry and landing explained

How does an astronaut return to Earth from the International Space Station? What does it feel like to re-enter the atmosphere? How does the Soyuz capsule function? Watch and find out.

This video has been produced from an actual lesson delivered to the ESA astronaut class of 2009 (also known as the "Shenanigans") during their ESA Basic Training. It features interviews with astronauts who have flown on the Soyuz and dramatic footage of actual landings.

David CThanks for that, very interesting. Never knew about the seat shock absorbers.
Lou ChinalApollo also had shock absorbent seats or landing strut release locks.
COR482932As regards the Soyuz launch, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me where the first stage and strap-on boosters of the Soyuz land after being jettisoned, and are they recovered?
