Three astronauts leave the International Space Station to return to terra firma today, and you can watch the whole event on livestream.
Starting around 2:15 p.m. ET, Russian cosmonauts Alexey Ovchinin and Oleg Skripochka and NASA astronaut Jeff Williams will say goodbye to their crewmates on the ISS and climb into the spacecraft that will take them home.
Around 5:50 p.m., the spacecraft will undock from the ISS and begin its three-hour return flight home, landing in Kazakhstan at 9:14 p.m.
This is all old hat to Jeff Williams, who has now accrued 534 total days in orbit—the most of any NASA astronaut, beating Scott Kelly’s record of 520. Williams also did a few spacewalks, including setting up a new docking port for SpaceX and Boeing spacecraft in August.
