    On Saturday, May 30, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launched Crew Dragon’s second demonstration (Demo-2) mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the next day Crew Dragon autonomously docked to the International Space Station. This test flight with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley aboard the Dragon spacecraft returned human spaceflight to the United States.

    SpaceX and NASA are now targeting 7:34 p.m. EDT on Saturday, August 1 for Crew Dragon to autonomously undock from the Space Station, with the two astronauts aboard the spacecraft, and return to Earth. Approximately 19 hours later, after jettisoning its trunk and re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, Dragon will splash down at one of seven targeted water landing sites off the coast of Florida at 2:42 p.m. EDT on Sunday, August 2.

    The Demo-2 mission is the final major milestone for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station. Once the Demo-2 mission is complete, and the SpaceX and NASA teams have reviewed all the data for certification, NASA astronauts Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins, Shannon Walker, and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi will fly on Dragon’s first six-month operational mission (Crew-1) targeted for late September.

  • Crew Dragon undocking and departure

    8:41

    SpaceX Demo-1 Crew Dragon undocked from the International Space Station’s Harmony module forward International Docking Adapter (IDA) on 8 March 2019, at 07:32 UTC (02:32 EST). The spacecraft is scheduled to splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean around 13:45 UTC (08:45 EST). Demo-1 is SpaceX’s first uncrewed test flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft on a mission to the ISS and was launched by a Falcon 9 rocket (Block 5 B1051) from the Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on 2 March 2019, at 07:49 UTC (02:49 EST). Crew Dragon autonomously docked to the International Space Station’s Harmony module forward International Docking Adapter (IDA) on 3 March 2019, at 10:51 UTC (05:51 EST). The spacecraft transported back roughly 136 kg (300 pounds) of cargo, as well as Ripley, the anthropomorphic test device (ATD) fitted with sensors.

    Crew Demo-2 Departure NASA Astronauts Return Home in SpaceX's Crew Dragon Spacecraft On Aug. 1, NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will depart from the International Space Station aboard SpaceX’s Dragon “Endeavour” spacecraft after their mission aboard our orbiting laboratory. Starting at 5:15 p.m.

    On Saturday, May 30, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launched Crew Dragon’s second demonstration (Demo-2) mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the next day Crew Dragon autonomously docked to the International Space Station. This test flight with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley aboard the Dragon spacecraft returned human spaceflight to the United States.

    SpaceX and NASA are now targeting 7:34 p.m. EDT on Saturday, August 1 for Crew Dragon to autonomously undock from the Space Station, with the two astronauts aboard the spacecraft, and return to Earth. Approximately 19 hours later, after jettisoning its trunk and re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, Dragon will splash down at one of seven targeted water landing sites off the coast of Florida at 2:42 p.m. EDT on Sunday, August 2.

    The Demo-2 mission is the final major milestone for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station. Once the Demo-2 mission is complete, and the SpaceX and NASA teams have reviewed all the data for certification, NASA astronauts Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins, Shannon Walker, and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi will fly on Dragon’s first six-month operational mission (Crew-1) targeted for late September.

    Partiti! Stanotte, alle ore 1:35 italiane, la capsula Dragon Endeavour si è sganciata dalla Stazione Spaziale Internazionale, con a bordo Douglas Hurley (DH nei sottotitoli) e Robert Behnken (RB). La procedura è andata liscia come l'olio ed esattamente come pianificata. A bordo rimangono il comandante, Chris Cassidy (CC) e i due cosmonauti russi, Ivan Vagner e Anatoli Ivanishin.

    Questo è il video che il canale di SciNews ha ritagliato dalla diretta ufficiale NASA, che mostra i tre momenti salienti dello sgancio e le comunicazioni tra Terra e gli astronauti. Per l'occasione l'ho sottitolato tutto per voi!

    Ora i due astronauti sono in viaggio verso casa e se tutto va bene e l'uragano Isaias non si mette di mezzo, dovrebbero ammarare al largo della Florida alle 20:42 italiane di oggi.

    Eravate di nuovo in molti a seguire la diretta dell'undocking, nonostante l'ora antelucana, quasi 300 spettatori! Grazie per avermi tenuto compagnia, nonostante la #ConnessioneAPatata :D Stasera si replica: diretta dalle ore 19:00 per lo splashdown!
