  • Dan Goes to Kazakhstan

    118,458 views 3 years ago
    Four times a year, human beings plummet from outer space to land in the middle of Kazakhstan.

    Right now, crews serving on the International Space Station start and end their journeys in the central Asian country. When it’s time to come home, they strap in for a parachute landing in the middle of the spare and remote Kazakh steppe.

    To bring their crew members home, a small NASA team makes the trip from Houston to Kazakhstan. NASA’s Dan Huot filmed one such trip in June 2016 when NASA’s Tim Kopra landed with British astronaut Tim Peake and Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko.

    Strap in.
