The billionaire SpaceX CEO, left, rushed to Houston from the company’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California to welcome astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, top right, home on Sunday. A clearly moved Musk spoke after his private company became the first to flew to the ISS carrying astronauts. ‘This day heralds a new age of space exploration. I’m not very religious, but I prayed for this one’, he said. Hurley said: ‘It’s a little bit overwhelming to see everybody here considering the things that have gone on the last few months since we’ve been off planet.’ The two men were greeted by a small masked-gathering of family and officials, including Musk. Their mission, named Demo-2, also marked the first time NASA launched astronauts from US soil in nine years. Sunday’s arrival was also the first water landing by NASA since 1975, bottom right.
