NASA, SpaceX Delay Crew 1 Astronauts Return To Earth



Astronauts on SpaceX’s first operational astronaut mission for NASA will have to wait a few more days to return home from the International Space Station due to bad weather at their projection site.

NASA’s four Crew-1 astronauts were scheduled to return to Earth on Wednesday April 28 aboard their SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, taking a dip in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida. But strong winds forced NASA and SpaceX to delay the landing until Saturday (May 1). Splashdown is scheduled for 11:36 a.m. EDT (3:36 p.m. GMT).
