After having her head in the stars, Anousheh Ansari, the first female space tourist, has her feet back on the ground. 


The space capsule containing Ms Ansari and the two professional space travellers* Pavel Vinogradov and Jeffrey Williams has landed back in Kasachstan this morning at 3:13 MET.


*I refuse to use astronaut  and cosmonut. Ideological idiocy!


One more time I’d just like to say – cool lady, cool trip. That slot couldn’t have gone to someone who wanted it more and really worked to earn it.
