Isopropyl Alcohol Smell at ISS Started to Disappear After Crew Dragon Undocked

Dragon Crew Demo-1 Mission launches from Cape Canaveral

Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA have confirmed that the launch of "Crew Dragon" has been successful with the spacecraft safely landing back on Earth.

SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean Friday, completing a NASA demonstration mission that paves the way for the resumption of manned space flights from the US.

The capsule, which was lifted out of the water by a boat using a crane, is due back on land by Sunday. "It's also the first commercially built human rated space craft", Gebhardt says.

First commercially-built and operated American crew spacecraft to dock with the space station.

At 8:35 a.m EST on Friday, the Crew Dragon deployed its parachute and landed into the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Florida. "It was lovely", said Benji Reed, director of crew mission management at SpaceX.

The launch systems are aimed at ending US reliance on Russian Soyuz rockets for $80 million-per-seat rides to the $100 billion orbital research laboratory, which flies about 250 miles (400 km) above earth. "You see some orange light flickering."While Dragon's crew member was a dummy named Ripley this time, the mission sets the stage for a manned flight, which will see two United States astronauts - one of them Behnken - book a return trip to the ISS sometime before the end of the year, according to NASA". From the images we can see that the outer shell of the craft has suffered burns upon its re-entry into the atmosphere.

While the Little Earth stayed with the astronauts on the ISS, the Crew Dragon had to go - carrying around 330lbs worth of experiment results and gear, Space X's Crew Dragon capsule got ready to return back to Earth for the final stage of its mission.

No humans flew on the historic commercial mission, called Demo-1 - only a crash-test dummy named Ripley, 400 pounds of cargo, and the fuzzy toy Earth.

"For the first time, we've gotten to see an end-to-end test, and so now we've brought together the people, the hardware and all the processes and procedures, and we've gotten to see how they all work together, and that's very important as we move toward putting people onboard", he said. In the coming months, SpaceX and NASA will analyze data gathered during the flight to prepare Crew Dragon for its first human passengers: NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley. "Our NASA and SpaceX teams worked seamlessly not only in the lead-up to the flight but in how we managed the flight", said Steve Stich, deputy manager of NASA's Commercial Crew Program. "I'm, personally, very anxious to hear how Ripley is feeling after they pull her out of the capsule and get her onto the recovery vehicle".
