NASA-SpaceX crew splashes down after return voyage

Eyewitness videos showed a SpaceX capsule streaking across the night skies of New Orleans on Monday evening, as it made its way back to earth after spending nearly 200 days in space.

The Dragon vehicle, dubbed Endeavour, parachuted into the sea as planned just after 10:30 p.m. EST on Monday.

Applause was heard from the flight control center as the four main parachutes inflated above the capsule as it drifted down toward the Gulf surface.
