NASA Astronauts Set to Return to Earth from Space Station


After completing a two-month long stay at the ISS, NASA Astronauts are set to make a splashdown today. The two NASA Astronauts are Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley. These astronauts, working for Nasa, had traveled to the Space Station in May. The Crew Dragon Capsule carrying the two astronauts was, however, built by SpaceX.

The Crew Dragon Spacecraft, ‘Endeavour’, finished undocking from the Space Station on Saturday. It is still waiting for a suitable time to make a splash-down.

Hurricane Isaias has made its way to Florida. Therefore, the splash-down of the spacecraft would be difficult. NASA is working on finding a suitable site for the splash-down, though. The Nasa astronauts are expected to make a splashdown today after 14:45 EDT.

There are seven splashdown sites available in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic, but due to the hurricane, only a few may be considered for the splashdown.

If the mission gets successful, it will open doors to explore new possibilities. Thus, enabling more astronauts to travel to space. It can even pave the way for probable future ‘Space tourism’.

Astronaut Bob Behnken is keeping us updated with his posts on Twitter, though. He tweeted:
