Sleep has always been overrated anyway… right?

Unless they would return straight to my home I’m thrilled

They can sleep in the capsule ;) But who would sleep if you in SPACE don’t get that opportunity a lot anyways… 36hrs+ without sleep isn’t going to harm you…

Oh I don’t worry for the spacemen and women, I’m talking about my fellow Europeans ;-)

I somehow assumed it was just left to burn down on re-entry, which sounds really stupid the more I think of it.

Will be interesting to see this premiere! Thanks for sharing the news, I would probably have missed this otherwise!

Thanks for sharing! I’m looking forward to seeing it

I must see the undocking but Idk if I’ll be still awake. Hope the mission’s going to be successful. Go SpaceX and NASA!

Once you enter earth atmosphere, technically you burning down back to earth.

Gotta say, I don’t quite see the thrill in leaving the only inhabited place that’s COVID free.


In all seriousness, this should be cool to watch. Certainly a milestone.

That’s true, yes. But the goal isn’t to have the least of rubbish, but to safely take people to the ground, which makes quite a difference ;)

Well the goal of the mission was to show NASA SpaceX is able to fly astronauts to space and back. And well the mission isn’t finished yet until they leave the capsule alive 😄
