Civilian Boats Surround NASA-SpaceX Splashdown

Civilian Boats Surround NASA-SpaceX Splashdown

As the first manned SpaceX flight’s capsule splashed into the gulf of Mexico, a flotilla of private boats greeted the astronauts. The Coast Guard requested that civilians steer clear of the capsule, in order to ensure that there weren’t noxious fumes in the area as NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken exited the capsule. But at least 20 boats, including one flying a Trump campaign flag, moved closer.
