I am watching loads of ISS related videos and there is one detail I recently noticed;
At the time, when Space Shuttles were still in operation and visiting ISS, when astronauts returned home, they were able to walk off the orbiter as it landed to a full stop on the runway. See related video (it will lead you to correct time) of Space Shuttle Atlantis:
If I compare it with returning home via Soyuz, the astronauts and cosmonauts have to be taken off by the rescue team and then carried on chairs where they would gradually adjust to Earth's gravity. Related video (again, at time of egress):
I immediately assumed that it must be the design difference between Space Shuttles (USA made) and Soyuz craft (Russian). Am I assuming correctly? Or did I miss something?
