The two NASA astronauts that flew on SpaceX's historic crewed mission with the Crew Dragon spaceship could return to Earth by Aug. 2 after a two-month stay at the International Space Station, Reuters reported Saturday.

NASA expects the spacecraft, nicknamed Endeavour, to transport Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley back through a splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Demo-2 mission launched in late May at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and marked the first U.S. manned mission since 2011.
