Originally return to Earth was April 18, but recently  the flight was extended to June 3 (for allowing more time for the crew’s research).

Так проходили "примерка" корабля "Союз МС-07" и проверка скафандров перед спуском. Уже в ближайшие выходные мой друг @anton_astrey и его экипаж вернутся домой - на Землю!
