Astronauts Target Splashdown off Coast of Pensacola, Florida (Update...Safe Splashdown)

Houston, TX....NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley are just hours away from splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida. Splashdown remains scheduled for 2:48 p.m. EDT following a nearly two-month test flight of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.





Pensacola, Florida remains the prime location with Go Navigator as the recovery vessel. The recovery boat departed its port at 9:20 a.m. to stage for recovery operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Go Navigator is operating with a fully functioning generator and is ready to support splashdown operations this afternoon. Earlier this morning, a backup generator failed on the recovery ship prior to leaving port, but that is not considered an impact for normal recovery operations. The recovery vessel still has full capability to safely recover the spacecraft and crew.

Return conditions remain “Go” at the primary and alternate targeted sites.

The duo arrived at the International Space Station on May 31, following a successful launch on May 30 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. During their 62 days aboard station, Behnken and Hurley contributed more than 100 hours of time to supporting the orbiting laboratory’s investigations, participated in public engagement events, and supported four spacewalks with Behnken and Cassidy to install new batteries in the station’s power grid and upgrade other station hardware.

More details about the return can be found in the Top 10 Things to Know for NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 Return and the splashdown weather criteria fact sheet.

More details about the mission and NASA’s commercial crew program can be found in the press kit online and by following the commercial crew blog@commercial_crew and commercial crew on Facebook.

Learn more about station activities by following @space_station and @ISS_Research

on Twitter as well as the ISS Facebook and ISS Instagram accounts.

    Trump’s agenda for next term. Make sure his base thinks they do not need masks . The Covid task force said 85 to 90% of the country need to to use masks . Can he just leave office today . Americans are in need of a real president and leadership. Not a band of incompetent clowns

        The GOP Senators were more worried about their constituents and chances of re election.
        History will show these Senators what a mistake they made.
        Hopefully, some of them will start standing up to the idiot in chief.

          And you sir, don't make much sense. Can you explain this to us all in detail-to make it more clear of what you're trying to say? Thank you

            Pretty simple.
            GOP didn't allow all the evidence to be presented.
            Trump should have been impeached.
            Sir.

        Pretty much evens out when you compare number of deaths to population of states.
        Unfortunately, NY and NJ got hit hard in March and April because the virus was coming in from Europe, not China.

        Being smug when over 154,000 Americans have died is disgusting.
        Outrage over the lack of leadership should be what most Americans should feel.
