Chichester Astronaut Tim Peake has landed back on Earth after six months in Space.
The space travellers were pulled one-by-one from the Soyuz and placed in comfortable seats.
Major Peake had his eyes closed and looked exhausted at first, but then smiled and gave a thumbs up to waiting reporters.
Asked how he felt, he said: ``Great, thanks. It was incredible - the best ride I've been on ever.
``I'm just truly elated. The smells of the Earth are so strong. It's just wonderful to feel the fresh air.
``I'm looking forward to seeing the family now.''
He added that spending 186 days on the International Space Station was a ``life changing experience''. Now he was contemplating treating himself to a ``pizza and cold beer''.
