Four European astronauts return to Earth after Axiom Space's Ax-3 commercial mission
Briefly

A crew of four astronauts splashed down off Daytona Beach, Florida, after completing a mission to the International Space Station. The crew returned to Earth in a SpaceX capsule that had launched from Kennedy Space Center three weeks prior. The Ax-3 mission was organized by Axiom Space and commanded by Michael Lopez-Alegria, a former NASA astronaut and now chief astronaut at Axiom. The crew spent 18 days at the ISS conducting scientific experiments and are now subjects of ongoing scientific research.
"It's been an incredible, busy and fun-filled two weeks up here," said Lopez-Alegria during a farewell ceremony.
