NASA astronomers returned to Earth for the first time this weekend, back to Dragon Earth



After a difficult two months in space, the first two NASA astronauts to visit the International Space Station in a commercial vehicle are ready to return to Earth – if the weather cooperates.

Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken arrived at the International Space Station on May 31, the day after they became the first astronauts to launch from Florida trapped in a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. This weekend, however, they have to deal with one of the most challenging aspects of the mission: leaving the space station, spending hours inside the same capsule, parachuting the Earth’s atmosphere, and splashing down off the coast of Florida.
