SpaceX brings 4 astronauts home, launches 53 satellites

SpaceX launched 53 satellites into space

Three US astronauts, and one Russian astronaut returned from space early hours of May 6, 2022 and landed in the Gulf of Mexico. Marcia Dunn from the AP writes, “NASA’s Chari, Tom Marshburn and Kayla Barron, and the European Space Agency’s Matthias Maurer, were out of the capsule within an hour of splashdown, waving and giving thumbs-up as they were hustled away on rolling chaises for medical checks.”

A few hours after the four astronauts arrived back to earth, SpaceX launched 53 satellites into space, also known as Starlinks from Cape Canaveral at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
