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.
