SpaceX crew splashes back down to earth after record mission

The astronauts spent five months in space, the longest-ever duration for a crew launched in an American-built spacecraft.

NASA’s Shannon Walker, Mike Hopkins, and Victor Glover and Japan’s Soichi Noguchi reached the space station via the Dragon capsule last November.
