Crew-2 Mission | Return ctm magazine

After 199 days in space, the longest-duration mission for a U.S. spacecraft, Dragon and the Crew-2 astronauts, Shane Kimbrough, Megan McArthur, Akihiko Hoshide, and Thomas Pesquet, returned to Earth, splashing down off the coast of Pensacola, Florida at 10:33 p.m. EST on November 8.

Dragon and the Crew-2 astronauts were quickly recovered by the SpaceX recovery team. SpaceX will transport Dragon back to Cape Canaveral, Florida for inspections and refurbishment ahead of future human spaceflight missions.

This mission marked multiple firsts for SpaceX and NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, including being the first to fly two international partners, the first crew mission to use a flight-proven Dragon and Falcon 9, and the first U.S. spacecraft to spend 199 consecutive days in orbit.

    Elon Musk has a wonderful reusable rocket and capsule for spacex. For satellites the payload fairings are reusable!!!

    What gets me. We had better video when the Apollo ships splashed down and under parachutes coming down. Why is that? Using parts from China?

    Just a suggestion for improvement to these broadcasts:
    Obviously, as with SpaceX satellite launches, narrations are always included but those broadcasts have an on-screen representation of the various milestones – MECO, 1st stage separation, MVAC deployment etc. Why not do the same with these much longer broadcasts seeing as there are long periods of relative inactivity; it would allow those not watching the live broadcast to fast forward to the milestones & make much more efficient use of their valuable time. Milestone inclusion may also encourage greater viewership; the thought of a 3hr broadcast probably discourages all but the most geeky of viewers.

    This is what I thought and expected the yr 2000 to be like for nasa and rockets 🚀 to be common events but I’m happy to see it 21.5 yrs later go spacex

    What a bunch of wimps! Real astronauts of yesteryear weren't treated as if they were infirm. Who's going to greet them on Mars when they get there, little green men with wheelchairs and stretchers? Today's "astronauts" certainly don't seem anywhere as vigorous and tough as Musk's excellent hardware which reliably and comfortably takes them to and from the ISS. Perhaps they need a Gold's Gym membership.

    I think they're all " Gay" . You're going to Mars, to find water. If there ain't no chicks there, and you've been traveling for a couple years, you're, all gay.

    What Elon has been doing is not just technology innovation. It is far exceeding because the results shines with glory and honor. I bet countless people’s eyes are wet when watching SpaceX videos. As a COO of a technology company, I barely to imagine what kind of efforts and determination behind. Person of year 2021? Not good enough to describe Elon.

    Can some one explain. fair enough they say that all things inside the earths atmosphere move at 1000mph but once u break from the atmosphere, are you moving at your own speed or at 64,000mph as that's the speed of the earth around the sun ? And then for crafts like voyager and the space x star man what happens when they leave earths orbit around the sun ? Do they then speed up to 540,000mph as that's the speed of the sun around the galaxy? Can you confirm all this

    hilarious how people can believe anything from these goofball agencies
