Four astronauts are on their way home. Join us for the final leg of their journey from the International Space Station back to Earth, as the SpaceX Crew Dragon Resilience re-enters Earth’s atmosphere and splashes down at about 2:57 a.m. EDT (6:57 UTC) Sun., May 2, in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida.

Aboard the Crew Dragon are NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker, and Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

This will be the first night splashdown of a U.S. crewed spacecraft since Apollo 8’s predawn return in the Pacific Ocean on Dec. 27, 1968, with NASA astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders.
