A SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule carrying four astronauts back to Earth splashed down off Florida in NASA's first nighttime ocean landing in more than 50 years.

According to the space agency NASA, the crew reported they were feeling well after their arrival back on Earth following a nearly six-month mission aboard the International Space Station.     

NASA said the astronauts traveled 71.2 million miles during their 168 days in orbit including 167 days aboard the space station.
