SpaceX, NASA sees weather for historic astronaut splash on Sunday


SpaceX is set to return its first NASA astronaut to Earth, but a possible tropical cyclone in the Atlantic may be delayed.

The SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft, called Endeavor, is scheduled to detach from the Florida coast on Sunday afternoon (Aug. 2). Its crew, NASA’s Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, are taking a historic two-month test flight, the first orbital trip by astronauts on a commercial spacecraft. Their splatter will also mark the first landing by American astronauts since the Apollo-Soyuz mission in July 1955.
