    Astronauts rescued as capsule lands off-target

    Astronauts rescued as capsule lands off-target

    American and 2 colleagues found safe after Russian spacecraft's glitch


    MOSCOW - A Soyuz capsule carrying South Korea's first astronaut landed in northern Kazakhstan Saturday, 260 miles off its mark, Russian space officials said.
    Mission Control spokesman Valery Lyndin said the condition of the crew South Korean bioengineer Yi So-yeon, American astronaut Peggy Whitson and Russian flight engineer Yuri Malenchenko was satisfactory, though the three had been subjected to severe G-forces during the re-entry.
    The Russian TMA-11 craft touched down at 4:51 a.m. ET about 260 miles (415 kilometers) off target, Lyndin said, a highly unusual distance given how precisely engineers plan for such landings.
