SpaceX crewmembers on a research mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS) prepared to return to Earth after six months on Monday, March 11. Scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), European Space Agency (ESA), Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and Russia’s Roscosmos were “preparing to wrap up their nearly six-month science mission, and bring home time-sensitive research to Earth,” NASA said in a press release. The SpaceX Crew-7 team delivered farewell remarks and hosted a formal change of command ceremony on Sunday, handing over command of the ISS to Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko. The SpaceX Crew-7 team splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico on March 12, after spending over six months aboard the International Space Station (ISS). NASA footage shows the moment the Dragon Endurance hit the water off Pensacola, Florida, at 5:47 am local time. The capsule was carrying NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli, European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Satoshi Furukawa, and Roscosmos cosmonaut Konstantin Borisov.
