Summary (IA Generated)

While most of the U.

was sleeping on Saturday night into Sunday morning, four astronauts aboard the International Space Station made the journey back home.

NASA astronauts Victor Glover, Michael Hopkins, and Shannon Glover, along with Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), boarded their SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, dubbed Resilience, at 8:35 p.

15, 2020 when a SpaceX rocket carried the same four astronauts skyward, with a ‘Baby Yoda‘ plush doll in tow.

In total, the astronauts spent 168 days in orbit, with 167 of those days spent aboard the ISS (the rest was transit time).

This marks the second successful splashdown as part of NASA‘s Commercial Crew Program, which sees the space agency working with outside interests like SpaceX to send American astronauts into space aboard U.

Another SpaceX mission, dubbed Crew-2, is already underway, after a successful launch in late April that ferried two NASA astronauts, one JAXA astronaut, and a European Space Agency astronaut to the ISS.

The Resilience splashdown wasn’t the flashiest thing to watch given the time of day, but it was a safe and successful one.

And, importantly, the arriving astronauts are thrilled to be home.

How we feel knowing that the astronauts of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission have safely returned to our home planet.
