NASA astronauts began assembling a SpaceX Crew Dragon back to Earth for the first time this weekend



After two busy months in space, the first two NASA astronauts to visit the International Space Station in a commercial vehicle are now ready to return to Earth, if the weather cooperates.

Doug Hurley i Bob Behnken arrived on the International Space Station on May 31, the day after becoming the first astronauts to launch from Florida located inside a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. But this weekend they have to face one of the most challenging aspects of the mission: leaving the space station, spending hours inside that same capsule, parachuting into the Earth’s atmosphere, and splash on the Florida coast.
