Space capsule returned cosmic rodents to Earth after a month flight.
On May 19, 2013 the returnable capsule of the "Bion-M” biological research satellite landed in a distance of 100 kilometers northeast of the city of Orenburg Region, Russia.
The descent vehicle separated from the equipment module of the Bion-M spacecraft at 6:32 a.m. Moscow time (02:32 UTC). After successfully passing through the dense layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, the capsule landed at 07:12 Moscow time at the designated area.
