On September 4, a SpaceX spacecraft carrying four astronauts returning from the International Space Station (ISS) landed safely by parachute in the water off the coast of Florida (USA), according to the Associated Press.
Due to which the mission of the astronaut group named SpaceX Crew-6 was completed. This is the name given to the sixth crew sent to the ISS under the collaboration between the US Space Agency (NASA) and SpaceX.
The four members of SpaceX Crew-6 include: Andrei Fadeyev (Russia), Sultan Al-Neyadi (United Arab Emirates – UAE), Stephen Bowen and Warren “Woody” Hoberg (USA).
Among them, Mr. Sultan Al-Neyadi is the first citizen of an Arab country to complete a long-term mission in space and conduct a “space walk”.
Astronauts from the ISS said that as soon as they reached the ISS they felt like taking a hot shower, hot coffee and sea air. Their return journey was delayed by a day due to bad weather at the landing site.
Their departure flight in March 2022 was also postponed at the last minute due to technical problems.
After returning to ground, the health of all four astronauts was stable and they confirmed that they were happy to return.
Before that, they took a few days to welcome and work with SpaceX Crew-7, the next crew on duty at the ISS. Crew-7 left Earth on 26 August.
Apart from this, this September another team will be sent to ISS in place of two Russian astronauts and one American astronaut.
Because the spacecraft that brought them back to Earth broke down, these three astronauts had to remain on the ISS for a year waiting for a new ship to be launched.
