SpaceX Dragon spacecraft landing in the Gulf of Mexico

Four NASA astronauts returned safely to Earth after spending six months at the International Space Station as part of SpaceX Crew Mission-2. All landed in the Gulf of Mexico. According to Indian time, the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft made a landing in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday morning after undocking more than 8 hours ago in the orbiting laboratory.

According to the information given in the press release by NASA, this spacecraft had two NASA astronauts – Commander Shane Kimbrough and Pilot Megan MacArthur. He was accompanied by French astronaut Thomas Pesquet and Japan’s Akihiko Hoshide. All four successfully stepped on the earth with the help of their parachutes without any fault.

“I can always hold my breath for those last 10 minutes,” Kathy Leiders, head of NASA’s Space Operations Mission Directorate, joked after the four astronauts returned safely. It is an amazing feeling to see them come out.

Returning to Earth for human space flight is always a busy time. Talking about the next events, on Wednesday, just a day after the return of four astronauts, SpaceX is going to launch four other crew of astronauts to the space station. The mission was supposed to take off last week but was delayed due to bad weather and the ill-health of an astronaut. NASA did not say which astronauts became ill or what disease they had.

The Crew-2 astronauts who returned to Earth on Tuesday morning witnessed two dramatic moments while aboard the space station. During a moment, it was thrown out of position due to incorrect thruster firing. NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough told reporters last week that our ground teams worked hard to make sure we stayed in a safe posture. Actually, we were in the Dragon capsule. We were ready to undock. Thankfully it was nothing like that. At first, NASA said that the crew was never in danger, but later NASA Flight Director Zebulon Scoville took to Twitter to explain the challenges faced by the mission.
