Crew Dragon Demo-2 launch, docking (TBD)

SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-2 is expected to be the second flight test of the company’s first human-rated spacecraft. Unlike Demo-1 in March 2019, Demo-2 will have two astronauts aboard: NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken. This flight’s launch date is dependent on a number of factors ranging from the outcome and results of the Demo-1 mission, an in-flight abort test and other items needed before the vehicle is dubbed ready for humans.

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.
