Dragon Splashdown — Space Exploration Fine-Art Print
Like millions of other people around the globe I watched in awe as SpaceX and NASA launched the Crew Dragon Endeavour capsule. It was launched into orbit on top of a Falcon 9 rocket on May 30th, 2020 carrying NASA astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken. The Endeavour capsule successfully docked to the International Space Station (ISS) on May 31st, 2020.
"It was a picture-perfect mission. It went as well as one could possibly expect. I'm super fired up. This is great. It's really great. We're looking forward to the next step." — Elon Musk, SpaceX
After about 2 months at the ISS Bob and Doug boarded the Crew Dragon Endeavour capsule for the return flight to earth. After entering the Earth's atmosphere the Crew Dragon's Drogue parachutes deployed to decelerate the vehicle before detaching and releasing the main parachutes which gently bring the capsule down to Earth. The Crew Dragon Endeavour capsule achieved successful splashdown on August 2nd, 2020.
Contained within the outer hull of the Crew Dragon capsule are eight engines called SuperDracos. In case of emergency, the SuperDracos can push the Crew Dragon up and away from the rocket. Once the capsule is at a safe distance, the Crew Dragon can deploy its parachutes and splashdown safely in the ocean.
