    Now aboard the recovery ship after a safe arrival.

      I thought that crew egress procedure would never be finished...

        P.T. Barnum would have been proud. "This way to the egress."

          It seemed they spent about 30 minutes trying to eliminate some leftover chemicals. Seems to have been a bit ... unnecessary as technicians were hovering around poking at stuff for a while BEFORE two guys in SCUBA tanks showed up.

            I appreciate the caution since this WAS the first time. I’m sure they will work on this before the next launch.

            But that fluster cluck at the landing site . . . I think they need more Coast Guard to keep the area clear. That could have been ugly if something had vented post landing.

                I guess a TFR doesn't work for boats...

                  No, but there was also a Notice to Mariners from the Coast Guard.
