  • SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-2 historic splashdown/landing returning NASA astronauts to Earth

    8:34

    SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour spacecraft’s landing/splashdown to Atlantic Ocean from Space Station returning NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to Earth on August 2nd, 2020. Next footstep for SpaceX and NASA is to provide successful splashdown of Endeavour capsule into Atlantic Ocean. This event will happen within 24 hours. Next upcoming event for SpaceX is to make Starship SN5 prototype 150m Hop test flight. Dragon technically is a passed milestone for SpaceX. Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken gave codename Endeavour to SpaceX’s Crew Capsule that originally called Dragon.
    Today on August 1st SpaceX made historic Crew Dragon Demo 2 return with 2 NASA astronauts onboard by a first attempt. Historic DM-2 launch was scrubbed at first due to bad weather conditions. Falcon 9 booster from this historic mission has been recovered on the droneship Of Course I Still Love You based in Atlantic Ocean. Here is quick recap of historic human returning mission.
    Next footstep for SpaceX in their space exploration strategy will be Mission to the Moon and making Moon Base Alpha using Starship Lunar SE spacecraft. I think Elon Musk already proved his capability to make multiplanetary future real. Here is what he said for Moon Mission together with NASA.

  • SpaceX Crew Dragon Returns to Earth - 8/2

    6:37:41

    SpaceX's Crew Dragon is scheduled to return from the International Space Station on August 2 with NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on board. The Post’s Libby Casey will anchor live coverage featuring reporter Chris Davenport, SpaceX’s Elon Musk, and current and former astronauts.

    Tropical weather barreling towards Florida could delay the planned return of the first SpaceX crew. Because Hurley and Behnken will aim for the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico just off Florida’s coast, the wind and waves must be relatively calm. It would be the first astronaut splashdown in 45 years.

  • LIVE: SpaceX Crew Dragon Leaves The ISS And Returns Home

    00

    We join NASA's live coverage of the departure of the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule from the ISS which will bring Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley back to Earth

    Teams from NASA and SpaceX are proceeding with preparations to bring NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley home to Earth on Sunday, Aug. 2, after receiving a weather briefing this evening from the U.S. Air Force 45th Weather Squadron.

    Conditions remain “Go” at several of the needed target locations for splashdown and recovery off the Florida coast on Sunday aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon “Endeavour” spacecraft. NASA and SpaceX will make a decision on a primary splashdown target approximately 6 hours before undocking Saturday.

    #SpaceX #CrewDragon #NASA

    Teams continue to closely monitor Hurricane Isaias and evaluate impacts to the landing sites in the Gulf of Mexico along the Florida Panhandle. Teams have several weather decision milestones ahead of and after undocking to adjust the splashdown location and time based on the forecasted conditions for recovery.

    Undocking remains scheduled for approximately 7:34 p.m. EDT Saturday, Aug. 1, and splashdown at 2:42 p.m. EDT on Sunday. This will mark the first return of a commercially built and operated American spacecraft carrying astronauts from the space station, and it will wrap up NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission after more than two months at the International Space Station.

    NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 return coverage is as follows (all times Eastern):

    Saturday, Aug. 1

    9:10 a.m. – SpaceX Dragon Demo-2 Farewell Ceremony aboard the International Space Station (ceremony begins about 9:15 a.m.)

  • LIVE: SpaceX Crew Dragon Return Home LIVE Crew Dragon Demo 2 LIVE | NASA astronauts return home

    Watch the NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Douglas Hurley return back to earth in SpaceX Crew dragon or Dragon 2 Spacecraft.

    Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken will disembark from the International Space Station in their SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft, deorbit, and splash down in the Atlantic Ocean about 21 hours later. Crew Dragon was launched to the ISS atop a Falcon 9 rocket on May 30, 2020. During their 2-month stay on ISS, Hurley & Behnken have been conducting scientific experiments, testing Crew Dragon's systems, doing spacewalks to replace space station batteries, and of course exercising for 2 hours each day.

    They’re coming home! ????

    On Aug. 1, NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will depart from the International Space Station aboard SpaceX’s Dragon “Endeavour” spacecraft as a part of NASA's crew Dragon Mission after their mission aboard our orbiting laboratory which is ISS(International Space Station). Starting at 5:15 p.m. EDT, tune in for our live coverage to see the duo undock from the station and make their return back to planet Earth.

    On Saturday, May 30, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launched Crew Dragon’s second demonstration (Demo-2) mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the next day Crew Dragon autonomously docked to the International Space Station. This test flight with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board the Dragon spacecraft returned human spaceflight to the United States.

    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.

    Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken arrived at the International Space Station on May 31, the day after becoming the first astronauts to launch from Florida tucked inside a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. But this weekend, they have to tackle one of the most challenging aspects of the mission: leaving the space station, spending hours inside that same capsule, parachuting through Earth's atmosphere and splashing down off the coast of Florida.

    The splashdown procedure marks the final hurdle of the duo's mission, dubbed Demo-2, and marks the final test for SpaceX's commercial crew system. After a safe return, the company should be clear to launch regular missions to the orbiting laboratory.

    Every step of the Demo-2 mission has been an evaluation of the new spacecraft, and both Behnken and Hurley and NASA leadership have emphasized throughout the mission that it has been a test flight. The astronauts' job has been to vet every aspect of the vehicle and ensure it is ready for regular use by crewmembers, but it also means that they have been guinea pigs of a sort throughout the mission, and that holds for their return as well, although the astronauts said they're unfazed.

    For decades, U.S. astronauts returning from space have touched down on land, either in a runway landing like those conducted by NASA's space shuttles or in a parachute landing as the Russian Soyuz capsules do. The last American crew to return to the ocean did so 45 years ago, at the end of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project mission in which astronauts met up with Soviet cosmonauts in orbit.
    Although NASA is eager to see the Demo-2 capsule undock, the scheduling of the return trip isn't set in stone. NASA and SpaceX will base the timing of the procedure on a host of weather and ocean criteria at whichever of the seven splashdown sites the team ends up targeting.

    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.

  • SpaceX Crew Dragon DM-2 Undocking with the ISS???? Live

    00

    SpaceX will undock from the International Space Station for the first time with their Crew Dragon capsule carrying 2 American astronauts. The undock procedures and hatch closure begin about 2 hours prior to the actual undocking, followed by a number of departure burns on the Crew Dragon capsule to complete the undock.

    Splashdown Live Event:

    SpaceX launched the second demonstration mission of its Crew Dragon vehicle as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Transportation Capability Program (CCtCap), carrying two NASA astronauts to the International Space Station. This mission is the first crewed flight to launch from the United States since the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011. DM-2 demonstrates the Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon's ability to safely transport crew to the space station and back to Earth and it is the last major milestone for certification of Crew Dragon. NASA has extend the mission duration to allow the astronauts to participate as Expedition 63 crew members.

    TWO American astronauts have been sent from space back to Florida — despite Tropical Storm Isaias threatening the Sunshine State.

    Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken aboard SpaceX’s Dragon capsule, dubbed Endeavour, undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) on Saturday.

    The ISS confirmed on Twitter that the Endeavour undocked at 7.35pm ET to complete a two-month mission.

    Two very small engine burns separated @SpaceX Endeavour from the station, the account posted.

    The spacecraft is slowly manoeuvring away from the orbital laboratory into an orbital track that will return @AstroBehnken & @Astro_Doug
    safely to Earth for splashdown on Sunday.

  • SpaceX DM-2 launch, landing, and deploy of Crew Dragon to the ISS!

    17:00

    A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched a Crew Dragon spacecraft on its first test flight with NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on-board to the International Space Station under NASA’s Commercial Crew program. They astronauts will stay aboard the ISS for between 30-90 days. Then, Crew Dragon will return them to a splashdown at sea. Delayed from June, July 25, Sept. 21, February, April and May 7. On May 27 the launch was scrubbed at T - 18 minutes due to multiple weather violations.

    On a side note, I would like to BLAST National Geographic and NBC Universal for falsely and illegally claiming copyright ownership of portions of this video, causing it to become blocked from all viewing! I disputed the claim, but YouTube gives them up to 30 days to respond (so I don't know when this video will become viewable). My DM-2 live stream was affected also, getting temporarily blocked for policy violations multiple times. Their behavior is unethical, illegal, and violates YouTube's policies. I believe their intended purpose is to delay the viewing of videos from other channels, thus driving more traffic to their channel. It's ridiculous. YouTube's horribly broken copyright system allows corrupt organizations to continue this exploitation.

  • SpaceX DM-2 Flight Day Highlights - May 30, 2020

    28:58

    Almost nine years after the final space shuttle mission, SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida May 30, an American rocket launching from American soil, placing NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken into orbit in the new Crew Dragon spacecraft for their journey to the International Space Station. Some 12 minutes after a spectacular liftoff from Launch Pad 39-A, Crew Dragon separated from the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket and Hurley and Behnken began monitoring a series of test objectives for the duration of the vehicle’s 19-hour flight to the orbital outpost in the first crewed mission for the Commercial Crew Program. The veteran astronauts are scheduled to oversee an automated docking of Crew Dragon to the station May 31 to join NASA astronaut and Expedition 63 Commander Chris Cassidy of NASA and Russian crewmates Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner.

  • 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, Behnken and 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.
