The Crew Dragon has successfully returned to Earth. For the first time, the crew of a SpaceX ship consisted of only civilians. The flight ended with a landing in the Atlantic Ocean - previously, the capsules returned only to the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

The flight took place at an altitude of 575 km and lasted three days, during which the crew received instructions from the control center, and also studied the Earth through a special transparent dome.
