Watching now.

In case just tuning in the Astronauts suits are being cooled. Showing features of the suit. They closed the hatch for the cupola. Coming up soon is the 7 minutes of blackout (in about 2 minutes). Splash down soon - about 20 minutes!! Over Pacific heading for Florida.

Anyone else following?

Expecting about a hour for recovery and opening of hatch.

Dragon looks a bit worse for wear on outside but what is this 2nd re-entry time for this one?

Looking at interior view and ocean shot and what a beautifully designed vehicle inside and out. Snazzy space suits too!

My butt was pretty clenched throughout the entire re-entry and splashdown. Can’t imagine how the people at SpaceX felt, let alone the people inside. Amazing mission all around. I had more fun than I expected watching the episodes on Netflix, and can’t wait for the final episode detailing the mission itself at the end of the month.
