NASADragon Spacecraft Departing Station Live on NASA TV

The SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft approaches the space station for a docking to the Harmony module’s space-facing port on March 23, 2024.

NASA’s live coverage of the departure of SpaceX’s uncrewed Dragon cargo spacecraft from the International Space Station is underway 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.

Following commands from ground controllers at SpaceX in Hawthorne, California, Dragon will undock at 1:10 p.m. EDT from the forward port of the station’s Harmony module and fire its thrusters to move a safe distance away from the station.

After re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, the spacecraft will make a parachute-assisted splashdown off the coast of Florida at 1:38 a.m. Tuesday, April 30. NASA will not broadcast the splashdown, but updates will be posted on the agency’s space station blog.
