« Four astronauts wrapped up their six-month mission aboard the International Space Station on Sunday and are now en route for a splashdown off the Florida coast. Their return was briefly postponed by a day due to bad weather conditions at the designated splashdown site.
Footage shows the astronauts inside the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft as they suit up and make final preparations for their journey back to Earth. Among the scenes, one astronaut is seen lending a hand to securely close the spacecraft hatch, ensuring a safe departure.
During their return journey, the crew is anticipated to spend a single day aboard the 13-foot-wide SpaceX Dragon spacecraft as it manoeuvres through Earth’s orbit, making its way toward the designated target landing site.
NASA officials have confirmed that the SpaceX Dragon is set to touch down in the waters off Jacksonville, Florida at precisely 12:17 am EDT (04:17 GMT) on Monday.
The four astronauts returning to Earth are NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Warren « Woody » Hoburg, Sultan Alneyadi from the United Arab Emirates (the second astronaut from UAE to go to space), and Russian cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev. »
