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.
