Ansari back on Earth

The Soyuz TMA-8 spacecraft carrying Anousheh Ansari and two astronauts landed safely late Thursday in Kazakhstan, and Ansari appeared to be in good condition as she emerged from the capsule after landing; her husband, Hamid, was on hand to greet her. I have not seen much about her near-term post-landing plans, although she is reportedly going to be in Washington DC on October 4 for an announcement about the $10-million Genomics X Prize the X Prize Foundation is developing. She will also be at the X Prize Cup later in October in New Mexico.
