Mission Details

SpaceX Demo-2

NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken launched aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft. The launch was a demonstration mission to certify SpaceX for regular crew rotation missions to the International Space Station. After a 19 hour coast, Crew Dragon “Endeavour” arrived at and docked to PMA-2, located on the Harmony Module on the US side of the International Space Station.

After a 63 day stay at the station, Endeavour undocked from the ISS and successfully reentered the atmosphere, splashing down in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Pensacola, Florida. This marked the first time crew splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico, and the first crew splashdown in 45 years.
