Call for media: Thomas Pesquet's return to Earth after 6 months in space

Media are invited to ESA's European Astronaut Centre on Friday, 2 June, to witness the return to Earth of Thomas Pesquet. The events include a live viewing of the capsule's landing, a photo opportunity with Thomas Pesquet on arrival of the ESA aircraft
in Cologne and a press conference three days after return.

Programme
ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet and Russian Soyuz commander Oleg Novitskiy will return to Earth on Friday, 2 June, concluding their six-month stay on the International Space Station. After a three-hour journey in their Soyuz spacecraft,
they will land in the Kazakh steppe at approximately 14:09 GMT (16:09 CEST). Media will have the opportunity to witness the landing live from the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) together with the astronaut's colleagues and friends. On this occasion,
media are invited to interview ESA experts, who can provide more information about his training, his mission and his return to Earth.

A few hours after landing, Thomas will continue his journey to EAC, the home base of all ESA astronauts, in Cologne, Germany. Thomas will be the ninth ESA astronaut to complete a long-duration mission in space and he will be the fourth after Alexander
Gerst, Andreas Mogensen and Tim Peake to fly directly back to Cologne where he is expected to land at approximately 02:00 GMT (04:00 CEST) on Saturday, 3 June. There is a photo opportunity upon the arrival of Thomas Pesquet on the tarmac.

Thomas will spend his first night back on Earth at the Envihab facility of the DLR German Aerospace Center, where ESA's medical team will monitor how he readapts to gravity after months in weightlessness and scientists will gather to continue the science
programme, collecting data on Thomas' rehabilitation phase.

The first press conference with Thomas Pesquet is scheduled to take place at EAC on Tuesday, 6 June, around 08:30 GMT (10:30 CEST). This will be a 45-minute Q&A session. For operational reasons, there will be no one-to-one interviews with Thomas.

Accreditation for access to EAC on 2 June and 6 June, as well as for access to the airport on 3 June, will be organised by ESA.

On May 18, 2017, a scheduled correction of the ISS's orbit was carried out in accordance with the flight program of the International Space Station (ISS).

To perform the maneuver at 00 o'clock.  35 min.  Moscow time the engines of the service module "Star" of the International Space Station were switched on.  The running time of the engines was 13 seconds.  As a result, the station received a speed increment of 0.2 m / sec.

According to the data of the ballistic-navigation support service of the Flight Control Center (MCC), the ISS's orbit parameters after the maneuver were:
 The minimum height above the Earth's surface is 401.8 km,
 The maximum height above the Earth's surface is 424.0 km,
 The circulation period is 92.675 minutes,
 The inclination of the orbit is 51.66 degrees.

 The purpose of correcting the orbit was the formation of ballistic conditions to ensure the landing of the SA Soyuz MS-03, scheduled for June 2, 2017.
