SpaceX has landed in the Gulf of Mexico with four foreign astronauts on board

Four astronauts landed on Earth Sunday night after spending six months on the International Space Station (ISS). They land at 10 am in the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida.

Astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi left the International Space Station at 3.30 pm last night.

The landing is the first of its kind in 45 years, as it used to take place at night. NASA has judged that the weather is better at night.

The flight from the International Space Station to Earth went according to plan and took 6.5 hours.

This was SpaceX’s first successful manned mission. The astronaut team was the first to travel back and forth to the International Space Station with the SpaceX capsule.

Seven astronauts are still on the International Space Station.
