CRS-16 unberthing, splashdown (NET)

After spending about a month docked to the International Space Station, SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft will be loaded with equipment to return to Earth before being unberthed. It is then expected to drift away from the outpost over the next several hours before performing a deorbit burn and re-entering the atmosphere to splash down the Pacific Ocean for recovery.

CRS-15 Dragon unberthing, splashdown

After about a month attached to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module, SpaceX's CRS-15 Dragon capsule is expected to be unberthed by the robotic Canadarm2. After moving safely away from the ISS, the spacecraft should reenter Earth's atmosphere, splashing down via parachute west of Baja California.

After being recovered by SpaceX personnel at sea, the capsule will be transported to the Port of Los Angeles where time-sensitive cargo is expected to be removed. The spacecraft should then be taken to the company's Texas facility to finish unloading the rest of its contents, which will then be sent to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.
