Their journey kicked off on Monday afternoon 2 ET when the astronauts in Crew wrapped the Dragon capsule, which had remained attached to the international space station since rowers arrived in April. For nearly nine hours, slowly roaming through orbit, approaching a dense inner layer of Earth’s atmosphere, before the Dragon crowd lit up their shovels to safely cut through the air, parachutes deployed and splashed into the Gulf of Mexico around 10:30 pm Monday. .
“It is great to return to Earth,” Kimbrough was heard saying moments after the explosion on NASA’s web.
In a press conference conducted remotely by the ISS on Friday, McArthur said using clothing rather than toilet “suboptimal.”
“But we are ready,” he said. “Spaceflight is full of many micro-challenges. This is just one thing that we have met and we take care of our mission, so don’t worry too much.”
Kimbrough, McArthur, Pesquet and Hoshide returned to Earth before the next group of astronauts could approach the ISS to replace them.
The next SpaceX astronaut launch, named Crew-3, has been delayed – first by weather problems and then by a “minor medical issue” with one of the astronomers. NASA said next week it would expect to clear that problem before takeoff, which could happen as soon as Wednesday.
