The four civilian astronaut who travelled into spatial orbit aboard SpaceX’s Inquisit4 have landed safely back on Earth after a three-day journey. SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft christened ‘Resilience’ splashed in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida, US at approximately 7:07pm Eastern Time(around 4:37am IST). Parachutes deployed as scheduled to control the descent of the spacecraft, to about 15 miles per hour (24.14 kilometers per hour) before splashdown, and again as the craft hit the water. The re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere and the descent was telecast live on SpaceX’s YouTube channel. SpaceX becomes the third private firm to have successfully carried out a civilian-space journey after Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, and Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin.
