The two NASA astronauts who rode to the International Space Station aboard SpaceX s new Crew Drago are due to return on Sunday after a nearly fourmonth voyage that marked NASA s first crewed mission from home soil in nine years. U.S. astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, who launched to the space station in May, are expected to board Crew Dragon around 5:30 p.m. ET and splash down at one of seven landing sites in the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean at about 2:48 p.m. ET on Sunday.
