SpaceX, the company that opened the doors to private space travel, said on its Twitter account this afternoon The group “rests healthy, happy and relaxed.”
That added Before going to sleep, the team members “traveled 5.5 times around the Earth, completed the first round of scientific research, and enjoyed two meals.”
The company founded by Elon Musk announced it When they wake up today, four team members are “conducting further research and first looking at the dome” of the Dragon Capsule.
Precisely, SpaceX released a short video taken in the background with the Earth from the Dragon’s observation dome on the social network this Thursday morning.
