Spacecraft landing in the dark

The spacecraft made a safe landing with 4 passengers in the Gulf of Mexico near Panama City in Florida, USA. For the first time in 53 years, a spacecraft made a landing in darkness. Earlier in 1968, NASA’s Apollo-8 vehicle made a landing in the dark. Then 3 astronauts returned, revolving around the lunar orbit.

In November 2020, three US astronauts and one astronaut from Japan were sent to the International Space Station (ISS) via a resilience vehicle. These include NASA’s Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Japan’s Soichi Naguchi. These four have returned to Earth after completing the longest mission of 167 days.

The capsule was taken out of the water on a recovery ship less than half an hour after landing. Shortly after, SpaceX personnel set out to open the side hatch of the Resilience. NASA’s Chief Flight Director Holly Riding said – The four crew members are completely healthy and feel better. He will meet his family and friends after a medical examination.
