The astronauts of SpaceX Crew-6 who went into space on March 2 are now preparing to return to Earth. The four members of SpaceX’s Crew-6 mission spent more than six months on the ISS and are now expected to depart today.
A few days ago, the four-astronauts team of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-7 reached the International Space Station (ISS). Crew-6 members bid farewell to the Expedition 69 NASA astronauts as they return to Earth.
NASA astronaut and Crew-6 commander Stephen Bowen said, “When we got here six months ago, it was a new experience for all of us. I’d been in space, but never on a long-duration mission.” Went, and it’s been an absolutely incredible experience.”

The Crew-6 mission was launched to space on March 2 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Their Crew Dragon spacecraft docked with the ISS on March 3.
The crew included NASA’s Bowen and Hoberg, astronaut Andrey Fadeyev, and United Arab Emirates (UAE) astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi. This space mission included cargo spacecraft visits, three spacewalks and the arrival of the X-2 private astronaut crew.
