The Dragon capsule successfully returns with the first civil mission in space

Miami, Sep 18 (EFE) .- The Dragon capsule, from the private firm SpaceX, successfully arrived this Saturday in the Atlantic Ocean and off the coast of Florida (USA), with the four members of the crew of the Inspiration4 mission, the first fully civilian to reach orbital space.

The Dragon arrived at the scheduled time, 19:07 (23:07 GMT), with the four crew members on board, none of them professional astronauts and who have reached orbital space for the first time in their lives.

The mission spent three days in space, traveling at a speed of 28,160 kilometers per hour that allowed it to circle the planet every 90 minutes, and at an altitude of about 575 kilometers from Earth (357 miles), more than the International Space Station ( EEI).
