Cosmonaut Returns

ZVYOZDNY GORODOK, Moscow Region () -- German cosmonaut Thomas Reiter, back on earth after almost six weightless months on Russia's Mir space station, said he was feeling fine.


The pilot from Frankfurt seemed worst affected when he emerged, almost unable to move, from a space capsule Thursday. But Reiter, 37, and his Russian crew-mates Sergei Avdayev and Yury Gidzenko looked well Saturday in Zvyozdny Gorodok, or Star City, the cosmonauts' village near Moscow.
