The Dragon spacecraft carrying Israeli astronaut Eytan Stibbe and the rest of the Axiom-1 crew has splashed down off the coast of Florida, returning from their trip to the International Space Station.

“On behalf of the entire SpaceX team, welcome back to Planet Earth. The Axiom-1 mission marks the beginning of a new paradigm for human space flight,” mission control tells the crew, the first all-private mission to ever travel to ISS.
