SpaceX capsule with NASA astronauts successfully splashed down off Florida coast

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley have returned to Earth with a splashdown off Florida, as tropical storm Isaias approached the state. They left the International Space Station on Sunday for the final part of their SpaceX test flight on the Crew Dragon, marking the first splashdown in 45 years for NASA astronauts and the first time a private company has ferried people from orbit.
