The SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule sent four astronauts back to Earth. This was the first night night landing by NASA in 50 years. It crashed in Florida in the early hours of Sunday morning. The crew said that after nearly six months of flying missions, they were in good condition after they arrived on Earth.
After flying for six and a half hours from the International Space Station late at night, the capsule crashed in the darkness of Panama City near the Gulf of Mexico at 2:56 am (12:26 pm U.S. Standard Time). Visual images of the NASA WB-57 research aircraft launched at high altitude showed that the crew of the Go Navigator rescue vehicle lifted the capsule to the deck about half an hour later.
Apollo 8 reached the Pacific Ocean on December 27, 1968. Commander Michael Hopkins was the first to appear after opening the hatch and making small maneuvers on the deck. Soon after, NASA astronaut Victor Glover (Victor Glover) followed. o Crew 1 and the names of our family, we just want to thank you… When people get together, what can be achieved is amazing. Everyone changes the world. Congratulations I’m glad to be back,” Hopkins said in a NASA tweet.
The other two on board were NASA astronaut Shannon Walker and Japan’s Satoshi Noguchi. New NASA Director Bill Nelson said, welcome You, Victor, Michael, Shannon, and Sochi go home and congratulate the NASA and SpaceX teams for “working hard to ensure your safety and successful landing.” “We have done another for the United States and our commercial and international partners. An incredible space flight. Safe and reliable transportation to the International Space Station is NASA’s vision.
When the agency launched the commercial flight attendant program, the range was 71 million miles. In November last year, astronauts took the spacecraft manufactured by Elon Musk to complete the first full-scale operation of the ISS. The spacecraft has become NASA’s most popular commercial transportation partner. According to NASA data, in 168 days (including 167 days on the space station), there were 114.6 million kilometers of orbiting.
This is the first time the International Space Station has been launched from the United States since the completion of the space shuttle program in 2011. This is also the first manned flight of a private company other than the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). On the Russian spacecraft.
