NASA’s SpaceX mission Crew-1 with astronauts came back safely to the Earth on Sunday morning May 2, 2021.

The SpaceX’S Crew Dragon used parachute’s assistance to splash down at 2.56 am EDT off the coat of Panama City Florida.

NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronauts Soichi Noguchi also returned to the Earth after successfully spending 167 days in space.

“Welcome home Victor, Michael, Shannon, and Soichi, and congratulations to the teams at NASA and SpaceX who worked so hard to ensure their safe and successful splashdown,” said Sen. Bill Nelson joined NASA as an Administrator on April 29, 2021.

“We’ve accomplished another incredible spaceflight for America and our commercial and international partners. Safe, reliable transportation to the International Space Station is exactly the vision that NASA had when the agency embarked on the commercial crew program,” Nelson added.
