NASA and SpaceX Delay 1-Crew Astronauts Return to Earth

Astronauts of 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 splashdown site.

The four NASA Crew-1 astronauts were scheduled to return to Earth on Wednesday (April 28) in their SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida. But strong winds forced NASA and SpaceX to postpone their landing until Saturday (May 1). Splashdown is slated for 11:36 am ET (1536 GMT).
