Trump hails SpaceX’s 1st splashdown with NASA astronauts. Obama, too.

President Trump hails SpaceX’s 1st splashdown along with President Barack Obama who also hailed SpaceX’s first splashdown of NASA astronauts on Sunday (Aug. 2), a landmark feat that capped the primary orbital space venture from the U.S. in just about a decade. 

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Endeavour effectively splashed down within the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Pensacola, Florida, returning astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to Earth after two months in orbit. Their mission, the Demo-2 test flight, marked the first orbital flight of astronauts from The united states since 2011 when NASA’s last space shuttle mission touched down. It was additionally the first water touchdown for NASA since the joint U.S.-Soviet Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in 1975.
