Interesting, the Navy has no role in the recovery. Spacex performs the recovery.

The fact that SpaceX beat Boeing says a lot about the company. But the bigger picture is this.. Just think we will no longer have to rely on the Russians for trips to space ever again.

I'm assuming they'll be wearing their Magic COVID Masks when they come out?

They are making sure there are no dangerous gases near them.

The previous splashdowns were in the pre-internet days, and yes they were televised by the big 3 networks.  Today with the internet just go to NASA or SpaceX online and watch it live.
