Two US astronauts make the first splashdown return in 45 years on Sunday. SpaceX and NASA plan to bring Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken back in the company's Dragon capsule. The splash down took place at around 2:48 pm ET. The successful return happened in the Gulf of Mexico while the storm slogged up Florida's east coast. Crew Dragon successfully separated from the ISS at around 23:34 GMT on Saturday.
