Space X – The Dragon Returns

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule cruised into its home port on Friday evening (Aug. 7), secured to one of the company’s recovery vessels. 

Onlookers gathered at Jetty Park (while social distancing) in anticipation of the Crew Dragon’s arrival after the capsule’s historic splashdown on Aug. 2 that returned NASA astronauts Bob Benken and Doug Hurley to Earth. The mission, SpaceX’s first crewed flight, was NASA’s first orbital crewed flight from U.S. soil since 2011.
