SpaceX capsule splashes back to Earth

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule completed its NASA demonstration mission on Friday with a successful splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean, paving the way for the resumption of manned space flights from the US.

After hours of suspense, the Crew Dragon touched down in the Atlantic Ocean at 8:45 am, some 370 kilometers off the coast of Florida. 


SpaceX celebrated another milestone in human space travel Friday after the capsule that is supposed to carry astronauts one day returned to Earth.

The capsule is reentered Earth’s atmosphere and splash downed into the Atlantic Ocean east of Cape Canaveral at 8:45 a.m. Friday.

This ends a test mission that started six days ago and proved a major milestone to NASA.
