The trio's departure leaves three crew members aboard the space station, headed by German astronaut Alexander Gerst, who took over the commander's role from Feustel.

Roscosmos and NASA have each opened their own examinations of the 2 millimeter-wide hole found in late August on the outside mass of a Russian Soyuz case docked to the space station after ground administrators revealed slight dips in pressure levels.

NASA issued a statement to limit speculation, after the Russian space agency Roscosmos "ruled out" a manufacturing defect. NASA astronauts Drew Füstel and Ricky Arnold and Oleg Artimyev of Roskosmos landed in the southeast of Kazak town of Kazakhstan at 11.45 pm on worldwide time.

Trump Mocks Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford at Mississippi Rally
Ford is accusing Kavanaugh of pinning her down and trying to remove her clothing at a high school party 36 years ago. On Twitter, Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for Ford, called Trump's remarks "a vicious, vile and soulless attack".

The three members of Expedition 56 returned home inside the same Soyuz MS-08 spacecraft that delivered the other half of the Expedition 56 crew in June. Although the space agency says it accepts Roscosmos' findings that the hole may have been made from the inside - and even possibly by drilling - they don't believe American astronauts worked to undermine worldwide cooperation in space by killing everyone on board the ISS.

A Purdue University graduate is closing out his stint aboard the International Space Station in unique fashion. Feustel has accumulated 61 hours and 48 minutes over nine career spacewalks, and ranks third overall among American astronauts. The spacewalk timed out at 7 hours and 46 minutes, the longest in Russian space program history.

The official, who was placed under U.S. sanctions over the Ukraine crisis in 2014, also bemoaned "problems" in the Russian space agency's cooperation with NASA that he attributed to interference from unnamed American officials. They are slated for launch overseas a Russian Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft on October 11 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, NASA said.
