The first fully private manned mission to the International Space Station was completed on Monday.

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, dangling from four parachutes, exploded in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida at approximately 7:08 p.m. Belgian time after a (extended) seventeen-day mission. On board were four people, including three space tourists: former NASA astronaut Michael Lopez Alegria, American businessman Larry Connor, Canadian investor Mark Pathy, and Dutch-Israeli entrepreneur and pilot Eitan Stipe.

They had departed for the space volcano from Cape Canaveral in Florida on April 8.

Due to bad weather in the landing area, the return was delayed several times.
