The Crew Dragon carrying NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley is continuing its journey from Earth orbit to a splashdown off the coast of Pensacola, Florida. The spacecraft currently is flying 132 miles above the Pacific Ocean and will soon cross Central America on its course toward the Gulf of Mexico.

“The burn went great,” SpaceX Crew Operations and Resources Engineer (CORE) Mike Heiman called up to the crew. “Your vehicle is still looking really good for entry.”

“OK, Dragon copies,” Hurley replied. “Thank you.”
