Axiom Space's second private astronaut mission to the International Space Station ended with a successful splashdown Tuesday night. The Crew Dragon spacecraft flying the Ax-2 mission splashed down at 11:05 pm EDT (0305 GMT Wednesday) off the coast from Panama City, Florida, 12 hours after undocking from the station. The four-person crew, commanded by former NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, were in good spirits after the nine-day mission, which included eight days at the ISS. The crew had a "very busy time" while on the ISS, a NASA official said Tuesday, conducting more than two dozen experiments as well as outreach activities.
