Ax-1 mission splashes down
Posted: Sun, May 1, 2022, 9:45 AM ET (1345 GMT)
Four private astronauts safely returned to Earth Monday after two and a half weeks in space. The Crew Dragon spacecraft Endeavour splashed down off the coast from Jacksonville, Florida, at 1:06 pm EDT (1706 GMT) concluding the Ax-1 mission by Axiom Space to the International Space Station. Axiom and SpaceX said the return to Earth was normal and the four private astronauts were in good shape after a stay in space that was a week longer than planned because of weather delays. Axiom Space says its next ISS mission, Ax-2, will launch in about a year, and it will soon announce the full crew for that flight.
