The crew had to return in "ballistic descent mode", Nasa tweeted, which it explained was "a sharper angle of landing compared to normal".

"Ballistic descent mode" ....because "falling like a rock" has so many negative connotations. o_0

Everyone made it safely back to the ground though, so the only downside was the need to don new underwear.
