Crew-3 astronauts on SpaceX ‘Endurance’ splash down from space station

Descending under parachutes into the Gulf of Mexico, SpaceX’s Dragon capsule “Endurance” brought four astronauts back from the International Space Station after an almost six-month stay.

Raja Chari, Tom Marshburn and Kayla Barron, all of NASA, and Matthias Maurer with the European Space Agency (ESA) splashed down Friday (May 6) at 12:43 a.m. EDT (0443 GMT). The landing, off the coast of Tampa, Florida, signaled the end of the Crew-3 mission, 176 days after it began.
