Watch live this Saturday! Astronauts Return Home From ISS on Crew Dragon
The Demo-2 mission, a collaboration between NASA and Elon Musk’s SpaceX, marked the first official test flight with actual humans aboard, launching from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida on May 30.
When are the astronauts coming back?
The spacecraft is set to undock from the ISS around 8 pm ET on Saturday, August 1, with plans for its official splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean the next day Sunday, August 2, around 3 pm.
In order for NASA to fully certify the Demo-2 mission as a success, astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will need to successfully return to Earth onboard the Crew Dragon.
