While in orbit, NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley captured stunning views of our home planet Earth.
The duo made history May 30 when they launched from American soil in a commercially built and operated American crew spacecraft to the International Space Station. Their mission and test flight is helping NASA certify SpaceX’s crew transportation system for regular flights carrying astronauts to and from the orbiting laboratory.
