Los Angeles: NASA's SpaceX Crew-5 astronauts aboard the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft came down safely off the coast of the southeastern U.S. state of Florida on Saturday, NASA said.

The four-member international crew, consisting of NASA astronauts Josh Cassada and Nicole Mann, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata and Roscosmos cosmonaut Anna Kikina, returned to Earth in a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Tampa, Florida, at 9:02 p.m. Eastern Time (0202 Sunday GMT).

The spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station at 2:20 a.m. Saturday Eastern Time (0720GMT).

The mission was launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Oct. 5 last year and docked to the space station the next day.
