Dang, Crew-3 is just so photogenic, I love it.

@Nasa has released images taken of Crew-3's return to Earth inside @spaceX's Dragon Endurance spacecraft.

SpaceX’s Benji Reed noted that, in additional to the damage to the [Crew-5] Falcon 9 booster during transport, SpaceX found minor damage to one parachute in the Crew-3 Crew Dragon return. Not a safety risk, including for the Crew-4 Dragon on ISS, but something SpaceX is studying.

Benji said there was no noticeable performance impact to Crew-3 return and SpaceX are studying to improve safety even further.
