SpX is having a post-splashdown press conference.  Scott Poteet is on the recovery boat and says the crew is having a good time, walking around, in great spirits. #Inspiration4

SpX's Benji Reed-this mission was awesome, how little issues we had. Couple issues with waste mgmt system, temp sensor in Draco engine but was double redundant so no risk. Have new Crew Dragon sc coming up.

https://twitter.com/spcplcyonline/status/1439387595260186624

Quote
SpX's Reed and Todd "Leif" Ericson say how often the hatch was open to expose the cupola was up to the crew except that it was closed during sleep time and had to be closed to use the restroom due to space constraints.

Ericson: waste mgmt issue was with the fan. SpX team came up with a backup plan and "my hat's off to them."

https://twitter.com/spcplcyonline/status/1439388919402016775

Quote
Ericson: had enuf propellant on board to extend for 2 more days if necessary even though went to a slightly higher orbit.

Quote
Reed: this crew was super trained. In future crews wlll have to be appropriately trained to keep themselves safe and the public safe. Depends on what they know already. Long term goal is to be like airline travel--buy a ticket and go.

https://twitter.com/spcplcyonline/status/1439393200364470286

Quote
Ericson (who is Inspiration4's mission director): cupola was huge success. Exceeded expectations optically. Flawless.
This mission is opening of second space age. Can't overstate impt of making diff here on Earth too -- pls contribute to St Jude.
End of presser.

Benji Reed says, in the wake of Inspiration4, the number of people approaching SpaceX about orbital flights is increasing significantly. I know they're already negotiating for missions three years from now. I'd expect demand greatly exceeds supply.

https://twitter.com/sciguyspace/status/1439388568477110282

In response to a question about Crew Dragon capacity for free-flyer missions, Benji Reed says they will look at scaling up Dragon options. Also mentions Starship is "on the horizon," and that vehicle will be able to take a lot more people into space at a time.

Helicopter N557AC is in the air and heading offshore to GO Searcher

And that’s me done for the night. Amazing mission, flawlessly executed. Many congratulations to Inspiration4 and SpaceX - Ad Astra!

And according to the helicopter's tracking info the crew landed at the Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Landing Facility* at 21:13 EDT.
*) now called the Launch and Landing Facility

Our #Inspiration4 crew took many amazing photos in space during their three-day mission, including this out-of-this-world selfie!

Jared, Hayley, Sian, and Chris are back home on Earth, but our team is still fundraising for @StJude. Join that effort: inspiration4.com/donate

We accomplished all of our on-orbit objectives but the most emotional point for me was shortly after splashdown when we learned we surpassed our @StJude fundraising goal.  On behalf of @inspiration4x and to all the supporters of our mission - Thank you!

Very cool! 1062 took great care of us and the launch photos are incredible. One of the first calls we made shortly after we arrived on orbit, was to make sure 1062 made it back safely to the drone ship. We are looking forward to watching her future missions.

I've had several questions about why there are no photos of Inspiration4 after orbit. It's a private mission, and their choice. Families are in regular contact and all is well. There will be some events. The video will eventually show up on Netflix. But this is not NASA, folks.

https://twitter.com/rookisaacman/status/1439867393266929666

The actual answer is that we only had so many ground station passes to transmit video. NASA and other government users are going to get priority. I suspect a lot of footage will be released shortly.  We had quite a few cameras on board.
