Summary (IA Generated)

Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley strapped into Crew Dragon prior to the launch scrub May 27.

Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley successfully launched to the International Space Station in late May and are now on their way back to Earth.

Crew Dragon successfully undocked from the International Space Station at 4:35 p.

Stormy weather at the potential splashdown sites in the Gulf of Mexico could complicate the schedule.

NASA tweeted on Saturday that Behnken and Hurley have several days of food on board in case they need to stay in orbit longer because of bad weather at the splashdown site.

Crew Dragon will be traveling at orbital velocity prior to reentry, moving at approximately 17,500 miles per hour.

A SpaceX recovery vessel will meet Crew Dragon (which the astronauts named Endeavour) to collect the spacecraft and parachutes from the water.

‘This is SpaceX‘s final test flight and is providing data on the performance of the Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon spacecraft and ground systems, as well as in-orbit, docking, splashdown and recovery operations,’ NASA said in a release.

If Crew Dragon passes these final tests, then SpaceX will be able to provide regular, operational flights to the ISS starting later this year.
