A few hours ago, the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft successfully splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida, marking the first night splashdown of an American spacecraft in 53 years. The Apollo 8 crew last returned to Earth in this way in 1968.

The flooding was successful. This time, the NASA team took into account the experience of splashdown of the Demo-2 mission apparatus in August last year and did not allow civilian vessels to come close to the ship.

In the fall, NASA plans to launch another SpaceX spacecraft. In addition, on September 15, the same Crew Dragon is scheduled to fly, which returned to Earth today, as part of the Inspiration4 mission with four civilian passengers.
