Tag: Astronauts return from ISS in SpaceX capsule

Triumph of the Private Sector in Space


Two astronauts in their Crew Dragon capsule (made by SpaceX) successfully returned from the International Space Station, gently splashing down in the Gulf of Mexico, at 2:48 p.m. Sunday. This was a historic mission, and went flawlessly. The capsule was recovered by a SpaceX ship in about an hour and a half. The astronauts got to the ISS powered by a SpaceX Falcon9 rocket in late May.
