After six months in space

This was the first regular use of a Crew Dragon capsule from the private space company SpaceX by Tesla founder Elon Musk (49). American astronauts, Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and their Japanese colleague Soishi Noguchi landed safely in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of the US state of Florida on Sunday morning. This was announced by the US space agency NASA.

Space travelers had previously been stationed on the International Space Station (ISS) for six months. The capsule was now disassembled from the International Space Station during the night after the return flight to Earth was delayed by one day due to bad weather. The ship, called “Crew-1”, docked at the International Space Station in November.
