Vande Hei’s tour was more than the single flight test of the U.S. airline, which was Scott Kelly’s 340-day tour in 2015-16. The entire history of about 438 regular days is manned by Russian cosmonaut Valery Poliyakov, located at the Soviet-Russian Mir airport between 1994 and 1995.
Prior to Vande’s arrest in Kazakhstan, some broadcasters believed that it would not return to Earth on the Russian Soyuz as planned, because the United States had condemned the Russia planned to invade Ukraine and the airfields were shut down.
However, NASA said the relationship with the International Space Station project had not changed and that Vande Hei had returned home as planned, but now it has been successfully implemented.
