Expedition 34/35’s return to Earth from the ISS

The Canadian Space Agency has one of the better summary videos about Expedition 34/35’s return to Earth from the International Space Station. Watch CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield and his crewmates Tom Marshburn and Roman Romanenko climb into the Soyuz spacecraft, separate from ISS, and parachute down before getting extracted out of the amazingly small capsule that brought them safely home. Regarding Hadfield’s historic trip, CSA tweets: 

They also conducted over 130 science experiments, a record amount for the Station.

Our gravity must feel strange after five months of floating.

So how many people are in space right now
