NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHouston, TX – After 30-days in the confines of a simulated spacecraft, the HERA Mission 10 crew will “splashdown” on the evening of Wednesday, June 1st.

Astronauts of the HERA 10 crew began their mission on May 2nd. The “splashdown” on June 1st, ending their 30 day analog mission aboard the HERA simulated spacecraft.
