News Synopsis

Following a half year in space, SpaceX's Crew-2 space travelers got back to Earth late Monday (Nov. 8), sprinkling down off the Florida coast to end the privately owned business' second long-length mission. 

SpaceX's Crew 2 mission for NASA sprinkled down securely in the Gulf of Mexico only south of Pensacola, Florida, at 10:33 p.m. EST (0333 GMT on Nov. 9), with a recuperation transport quickly recovering the space flyers' Crew Dragon container from the ocean. Their return wrapped up a six-month outing to the International Space Station (ISS). 

"It's incredible to have returned to planet Earth," Kimbrough was heard saying at the time after splashdown on NASA's webcast.
