Three astronauts have returned safely to Earth from the International Space Station.

U.S. astronaut Kevin Ford and his Russian counterparts Oleg Novitskiy and Evgeny Tarelkin landed safely Saturday morning in a Russian Soyuz capsule on the snow-covered steppes of Kazakhstan.

The three men had spent 144 days on the space station.

Their return, originally scheduled for Friday, was delayed a day because of poor weather conditions in the landing area.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is now at the helm of the remaining 3-member ISS crew.
