It's always relaxing coming home after a long day at work. Yesterday, three astronauts from the International Space Station came home after a whopping 194 days in space.

They were due to leave the ISS a month ago, but were delayed when their unmanned resupply ship crashed. 

Thanks to the delay, Samantha Cristoforetti set a new record for the most time spent in space by a female astronaut on a single mission. Impressive as that is, I know I'd be happy to get my feet back on solid ground.
