SpaceX and NASA are targeting no earlier than Sunday, September 3 at 7:05 a.m. ET for Dragon to autonomously undock from the International Space Station. After performing a series of departure burns to move away from the space station, Dragon will conduct multiple orbit-lowering maneuvers, jettison the trunk, and re-enter Earth’s atmosphere for splashdown off the coast of Florida approximately 17 hours later at 12:17 a.m. ET on Monday, September 4.
Aboard the spacecraft will be Crew-6 NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Woody Hoburg, Rocosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev, and UAE (United Arab Emirates) astronaut Sultan Alneyadi, who flew to the space station on Dragon when Falcon 9 launched the spacecraft from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Thursday, March 2 at 12:34 a.m. ET.
Live webcast coverage of Crew-6’s return to Earth will begin about 20 minutes prior to undocking.
