Blog SpaceX’s Crew-1 Dragon Scheduled for a Sunday Splashdown

Bad weather has delayed the return of the four astronauts traveling back to Earth aboard SpaceX’s Crew-1 Dragon capsule.

NASA and SpaceX announced the delay Friday after a series of delays since Wednesday.

Mission managers have rescheduled the return of Crew-1 astronauts – NASA’s Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker, and Japan’s Soichi Noguchi – for Sunday. The capsule will undock from the station on Saturday at 8:35 p.m. ET and will splashdown about six-and-a-half hours later in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida.

The crew is wrapping up a six-month mission in space. Their flight to the space station was SpaceX’s first crewed mission for its Dragon spacecraft. 

Despite the delay, NASA said the station was “teeming with science” as the crew collected and stowed urine samples, conducted behavioral research, and explored how affects grip and movement. Fuel bottles supporting combustion experiments were swapped out while new hardware was installed to activate a high-performance space computer study.
