MISSION CONTROL STATUS REPORT
AUGUST 29, 2019
multipurpose crew vehicle successfully splashed down today in the Pacific Ocean near San Clemente Island, California, at 9:45
The combined crew of acting mission commander Tea Nowinski and
spacecraft crew members Taj Radhakrishnan, Natalia Yorkina, and Lucas Munaretto were taken aboard the recovery vessel
within an hour and are undergoing physical examinations at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Nowinski is expected to return to Houston this evening.
The landing ended a ten-day mission filled with anomalies, including unplanned events aboard the Near-Earth Object Keanu that resulted in the deaths of
astronauts Patrick Downey and Yvonne Hall as well as
cosmonaut Dennis Chertok and the apparent loss of mission commander Zack Stewart. The Coalition spacecraft
was also destroyed, resulting in a combined return crew.
NASA mission control continues its attempts to contact Stewart. Meanwhile, Keanu has departed Earth orbit at a speed of over 40,000 kilometers an hour.
Those seeking information regarding the impacts near Houston and Bangalore are referred to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
NASA PRESS RELEASE
