The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft, with Expedition 71 crew members NASA astronauts Matthew Dominick, Michael Barratt, and Jeanette Epps, as well as Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin, undocked from the forward-facing port of the station’s Harmony module at 8:57 a.m. EDT, to autonomously redock with the module’s space-facing port.

Redocking is planned at 9:38 a.m. NASA will continue coverage will air live on NASA+, NASA Television, the NASA app, YouTube, and the agency’s website. Learn how to stream NASA TV through a variety of platforms including social media.

As the 28th spacecraft relocation in station history, the move makes room for the arrival of the uncrewed SpaceX Dragon carrying cargo to station as part of the company’s 31st commercial resupply services mission for NASA, targeted to launch in August.
