The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket booster, which launched NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the ISS, returned to Port Canaveral on Tuesday. The booster landed on the droneship “Of Course I Still Love You” shortly after the Crew Dragon spacecraft’s launch on Saturday. This mission marked the first time a private company launched humans into orbit and the first U.S. launch since 2011. The booster, carrying the historic NASA worm logo, was transported back to Port Canaveral for refurbishment. It took about four days to return, where SpaceX will use a crane to offload and prepare it for potential future use.
