SpaceX to return NASA astronauts to Earth for the 1st time today.
About 2:48 PM..

It's splashdown day for SpaceX's first NASA crew.

After a two-month trip to International Space Station, the SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour carrying NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will return to Earth today (Aug. 2). The splashdown is set for 2:48 p.m. EDT (1948 GMT) off the coast of Pensacola, Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. It will mark the first water landing since 1975, when the NASA astronauts on the joint Apollo-Soyuz test mission returned home.

Thanks for posting this.

I grew up with the Alan Shepards and John Glenns.  It's a shame the nation is so preoccupied with themselves, they've become apathetic to such marvels.

Always a thrill for me.  Congrats to Elon and his team of geniuses. Cheer
My mind, a field of battles, struggles for peace in a tight place.
