    The journey is over for the first female tourist to have made a round trip into space and back.
    A Soyuz capsule (太空舱)carrying Anousheh Ansari and her fellow passengers, International Space Station (ISS) commander Pavel Vinogradov and flight engineer Jeffrey Williams landed on the steppes(大草原) of Kazakhstan just before sunrise on Friday.
    Ansari, a US citizen of Iranian origin, is the fourth tourist to pay her way to the ISS. She kept the public updated on her 10 days in space via her blog.
    There, she wrote about the little curiosities of space travel, such as the delicate (精细的) task of shampooing one’s hair in weightlessness, the queasiness (恶心) of the first few days in space and getting “stuck” in the middle of a module(舱) when she could not touch any walls to anchor (把……固定住) herself or push off.
    “I looked out of the window a lot and thought to myself, ‘I don’t know when I’ll see this view again,’” she wrote. She received hundreds of comments on her blog.
    “I really think that her flight has taken it to a new level because it’s reached a much broader audience,” says Eric Anderson, president and CEO, Space Adventures, based in Vienna, Virginia, US. The company books flights to the ISS for citizens who can afford it. The company also has plans for tourist spacewalks from the ISS.
