SpaceX Crew Capsule Leaves International Space Station

Elon Musk's SpaceX 'Crew Dragon' makes successful landing

SpaceX launched the private spacecraft on March 2 atop a Falcon 9 rocket from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Space station crew members are smitten with the toy.

"Today's successful, splashdown of the SpaceX Demo-1 Crew Dragon capsule after its mission to the ISS marked another milestone in a new era of human spaceflight", NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine wrote in a tweet.

SpaceX's new commercial astronaut capsule, the Crew Dragon, has completed its first test flight, falling into the Atlantic Ocean on Friday morning.

Another source in the industry told Sputnik on Tuesday that air analyzers had recorded a high concentration of isopropyl in the air circulating within the ISS soon after the Crew Dragon docked at it on March 3. "He adds that" this the first time that an American spacecraft has docked since the retirement of shuttle in 2011".

Called Crew Dragon, the vehicle landed in the Atlantic Ocean on Friday, following a six-day mission in orbit.

The U.S. relies on Russian Federation to launch astronauts to the space station, at a cost of about $80 million per ticket. From the images we can see that the outer shell of the craft has suffered burns upon its re-entry into the atmosphere.

Crew Dragon carried a passenger on this flight test - a lifelike test device named Ripley, which was outfitted with sensors to provide data about potential effects on humans traveling in the spacecraft.

A critical step in validating the performance of SpaceX's systems, Demo-1 brings the nation a significant step closer to the return of human launches to the space station from U.S soil for the first time since 2011, when NASA flew its last space shuttle mission. "You see some orange light flickering."While Dragon's crew member was a dummy named Ripley this time, the mission sets the stage for a manned flight, which will see two USA astronauts - one of them Behnken - book a return trip to the ISS sometime before the end of the year, according to NASA".

The Crew Dragon during atmospheric re-entry. "Our NASA and SpaceX teams worked seamlessly not only in the lead-up to the flight but in how we managed the flight", said Steve Stich, deputy manager of NASA's Commercial Crew Program. Assuming all went well, an abort test of the Crew Dragon will happen in June, followed by the Demo-2 test, in which the capsule will deliver two NASA astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, to the ISS. The objective of the mission was to prove that SpaceX and more importantly the inhabitants of Earth had developed a safe way to transport humans and cargo up to the International Space Station. "I'm, personally, very anxious to hear how Ripley is feeling after they pull her out of the capsule and get her onto the recovery vehicle".
