  • An American spacecraft designed to carry astronauts has successfully completed a six-day test mission.
  • 2
  • The unmanned SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule touched down safely Friday morning in the Atlantic Ocean.
  • 3
  • The landing happened about 300 kilometers off the coast of Florida.
  • 4
  • Crew Dragon began its six-hour trip back to Earth after pulling away from the International Space Station, or ISS.
  • 5
  • The spacecraft spent the week docked at the ISS.
  • 6
  • Crew Dragon launched on March 2 from Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
  • 7
  • It successfully linked up with the space station the next day.
  • 8
  • SpaceX employees who watched the landing at company headquarters in California cheered when the red and white parachutes opened to lower Crew Dragon into the water.
  • 9
  • "I'm kind of shaky and I'm super excited," said Benji Reed, SpaceX's director of crew mission management.
  • 10
  • "Everything happened just perfectly, right on time the way that we expected it to."
  • 11
  • It was the first time in 50 years that a capsule designed for astronauts returned from space by landing in the Atlantic Ocean.
  • 12
  • The last time was on March 13, 1969, when America's Apollo 9 landed in the ocean after orbiting Earth in preparation for moon landings.
  • 13
  • American space station astronauts have been carried to space by Russian rockets since the U.S. space agency NASA halted its shuttle program eight years ago.
  • 14
  • The successful test mission marked an important moment for the U.S. space program's plans to restart manned space flights.
  • 15
  • SpaceX plans to launch its first crewed test flight in July with American astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken.
  • 16

  • 21
  • Crew Dragon brought 180 kilograms of test equipment to the space station, including a dummy named Ripley.
  • 22
  • The dummy was fitted with sensors around its head, neck, and back for an experiment designed to test how a flight would feel for humans.
  • 23
  • The space station's three-member crew greeted Crew Dragon upon its arrival.
