SpaceX, Axiom Space, and NASA are targeting no earlier than Tuesday, May 30 at 11:05 a.m. ET for Dragon to depart from the International Space Station. After performing a series of burns to move away from the space station, Dragon will conduct multiple orbit-lowering maneuvers, jettison its trunk, and re-enter Earth’s atmosphere, landing off the coast of Florida twelve hours later at approximately 11:02 p.m. ET.
Aboard the spacecraft will be Ax-2 astronauts Peggy Whitson, John Shoffner, Ali Alqarni, and Rayyanah Barnawi, who flew to the space station on Dragon when Falcon 9 launched the spacecraft from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Sunday, May 21 at 5:37 p.m. ET.
Live webcast coverage will begin about fifteen minutes prior to undocking and resume about one hour before prior to splashdown.
