To those asking how my leg is doing post-flight: it’s awesome! The first internal prosthesis in space and certainly not the last!!!

They're back!

Noting that at least some of the Inspiration4 crew tweets are not loading in the forum.  Only the text is appearing, as when a Tweet is deleted.

Other tweets not affected.

What's up?

(Great reminder to attach Tweet images to posts, if the images are noteworthy.)

I have no words to describe the awe and inspiration I felt as I watched my friend go to space. @DrSianProctor @ArceneauxHayley @ChrisSembroski and @rookisaacman opened the door to an exciting new future for all of us.

🙏 @inspiration4x @spacex #Inspiration4

The Inspiration4 Dragon trunk has now been cataloged as 49248, 2021-084B and is in a 360 x 369 km x 51.7 deg orbit.
 (Thanks @Skitt0608 !)

As expected, the trunk's orbit is very close to the final orbit of Inspiration4 before its return to Earth. This confirms no further phasing burn was done after the two orbit lowering burns.

The moment when me and my amazing crew, @rookisaacman, @ArceneauxHayley, @ChrisSembroski opened up the @SpaceX cupola for the first time, a true highlight of the @inspiration4x mission. Make sure you tune into Countdown on @netflix to see more epic moments from space! @TIME

You’re going to love the ride @Astro_Megan! And no better sound than hearing those parachutes deploy 🥰

You will have no trouble noticing the claw sep and trunk jettison pyros firing.

Amazing views from Crew Dragon Resilience’s cupola. @ArceneauxHayley, @DrSianProctor, @ChrisSembroski & I were so fortunate to have this perspective and we will do all we can to share the experience with the 🌎. The @inspiration4x mission to inspire and support @StJude continues

It still feels wrong to see a booster held up by just Octagrabber. #SpaceXFleet #SpaceX #Inspiration4

B1062-3 is horizonal now, no sign of the transporter so it is likely just going to be put onto stands.  #SpaceXFleet #SpaceX @rookisaacman

That is silly.  The legs weren't supporting when they were down and the Octagrabber was employed.

Dragon Recovery ship GO Navigator has returned to Tampa, after ultimately not being required for Inspiration4 splashdown.

I'd expect the ship to stay there until the upcoming CRS-23 splashdown.
