    Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley spoke on Sunday following their return to Earth from the International Space Station (ISS) on the SpaceX Crew Dragon DM-2 in what was the first splashdown in 45 years for NASA and first ever for SpaceX with crew on board, with Hurley calling it quite an odyssey.

    The pair had spent just over 60 days on board the ISS after departing May 30 in what was the first manned space launch from U.S. soil in decades.

    Behnken spoke about his and Hurley's experiences, saying they lived through a big chunk of the shuttle era and of the assembly of the ISS. He said it was also a sad day when they retired the shuttle program in the U.S., saying they're super proud to be part of the team who brought the capability of space flights back to the U.S.

    SpaceX CEO Elon Musk also spoke, saying the return of the astronauts was something the whole world can take pleasure in as an achievement of humanity, remarking on the current time where there's not much good news and hoped it's something that can brighten people's day no matter where they are on Earth.

SpaceX and NASA are now targeting 7:34 p.m. EDT on Saturday, August 1 for Crew Dragon to autonomously undock from the Space Station, with the two astronauts aboard the spacecraft, and return to Earth. Approximately 19 hours later, after jettisoning its trunk and re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, Dragon will splash down at one of seven targeted water landing sites off the coast of Florida at 2:42 p.m. EDT on Sunday, August 2. The Demo-2 mission is the final major milestone for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station. Once the Demo-2 mission is complete, and the SpaceX and NASA teams have reviewed all the data for certification, NASA astronauts Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins, Shannon Walker, and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi will fly on Dragon’s first six-month operational mission (Crew-1) targeted for late September.

    The SpaceX Crew Dragon DM-2 splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday, carrying Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley back to Earth following a two-month stay at the International Space Station (ISS).

    The splashdown was SpaceX's first with astronauts on board and NASA's first splashdown in 45 years.

    NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine, joined by other NASA and SpaceX officials, held a press conference following the splashdown of the SpaceX Crew Dragon DM-2 in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday and informed reporters and the public that both astronauts were doing well and would return to Houston, Texas that evening.

    Bridenstine also addressed concerns raised about the number of boats that converged on the capsule Endeavor following its landing, saying that while the Coast Guard had cleared the area for landing, following the touchdown, they had not expected so many vessels to be drawn to the area. He said they will use this to better guide future splashdowns and acknowledged that NASA needs to do better.

  • NASAs SpaceX DM-2 Mission Highlights

    59:52

    The SpaceX Demo-2 test flight for NASA's Commercial Crew Program was the first to deliver astronauts to the International Space Station and return them safely to Earth onboard a commercially built and operated spacecraft.

    The crew launched on Saturday, May 30 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida and arrived at the orbiting laboratory on May 31. The SpaceX Crew Dragon “Endeavour” splashed down off the coast of Pensacola, Florida, Sunday, Aug. 2 at 2:48 pm EDT following their undocking from the International Space Station Saturday, Aug. 1 at 7:35 pm EDT.

    During their 62 days aboard station, Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley contributed more than 100 hours of time to supporting the orbiting laboratory’s investigations, participated in public engagement events, and supported four spacewalks with Behnken and Cassidy to install new batteries in the station’s power grid and upgrade other station hardware.

    These activities are a part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, which has been working with the U.S. aerospace industry to launch astronauts on American rockets and spacecraft from American soil the International Space Station for the first time since 2011. This is SpaceX’s final test flight and is providing data about the performance of the Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon spacecraft and ground systems, as well as in-orbit, docking, splashdown and recovery operations. 

    The test flight also will help NASA certify SpaceX’s crew transportation system for regular flights carrying astronauts to and from the space station. SpaceX is readying the hardware for the first rotational mission that will occur following NASA certification, which is expected to take about six weeks.

    The goal of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program is safe, reliable and cost-effective transportation to and from the International Space Station. This could allow for additional research time and increase the opportunity for discovery aboard humanity’s testbed for exploration, including helping us prepare for human exploration of the Moon and Mars.

    SpaceX Crew Dragon makes historic 1st splashdown to return NASA astronauts home

    SpaceX's first astronaut mission for NASA is in the books.

    A Crew Dragon capsule carrying NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley splashed down off the coast of Pensacola, Florida, at 2:48 p.m. EDT (1848 GMT) today (Aug. 2), bringing an end to SpaceX's historic Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station.

    Welcome back to planet Earth, SpaceX's mission control radioed the two astronauts aboard the capsule, which is named Endeavour. Thanks for flying SpaceX.

    It was truly our honor and privilege, Hurley radioed back. Just hours earlier, while still in space, Hurley said the experience is one he won't soon forget.

    It's hard to put into words just what it was like to be a part of this expedition — Expedition 63, Hurley said during a farewell ceremony aboard the space station on Saturday (Aug. 1), the day Endeavour undocked and began its journey home. It'll be kind of a memory that will last a lifetime for me.
