Safe landing with passengers then became another history in the world of space. 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. First of all Mike Hopkins came out and said- it was awesome. Together you are changing the world. The rest of the members came out after them. 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.
US ships land on water, on Russia’s land
Mercury, Gemini and Apollo of NASA landed in the sea in 1960-70. Later began landing on the ground. In 2020, SpaceX started landing in the water again via Dragon. All former Soviet vehicles landed on Earth. Russia’s Soyuz and China’s Shenzhou also hit the ground.
