After spending two months on the International Space Station (ISS), NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken are back home after the SpaceX Dragon Capsule splashes down in the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Pensacola, Florida, at 2:48 p.m Eastern time.
“On behalf of the SpaceX and NASA teams, welcome home and thanks for flying SpaceX,” SpaceX mission control radioed to Hurley and Behnken.
“It’s truly our honor and privilege,” Hurley responded. “On behalf of the Dragon Endeavour, congrats to NASA and SpaceX.” He later radioed back, “All is well.”
Dragon Capsule was lifted aboard the SpaceX recovery ship Go Navigator after nearly 40 minutes.
