NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley returned to Earth from the International Space Station on Sunday. The duo made history in late May when they took a SpaceX rocket to the ISS, the first commercially run space flight in history. They undocked from the station on Sunday, landing later that day in the Gulf of Mexico. Both men said that the vehicle lives up to its name in terms of noise. “It sounds like an animal coming through the atmosphere with all the puffs that are happening from the thrusters and the atmospheric noise,” Behnken said. The two men are happy to be back but said they were honored to be part of this historic flight.
