The moment of splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean of the US company SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft with the world’s first crew consisting of all civilians was filmed. The broadcast was conducted on the company’s website.
SpaceX congratulated the astronauts by tweeting a post with the caption “Welcome back to Earth.”

Today’s splashdown marks the end of a historic mission. A private spacecraft was the first to fly into space with a crew that did not include government astronauts. Inside the reusable Resilience capsule were Mission Commander Jared Isaacman, Medical Officer Hayley Arseno (youngest female astronaut), Mission Specialist Chris Sembroski, and Dr. Sian Proctor, a geologist.
