Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program are aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon as it approaches the International Space Station on May 31, 2020. The Crew Dragon’s nose cone is open revealing the spacecraft’s docking mechanism that would connect to the Harmony module’s forward International Docking Adapter. The astronauts launched a day earlier on the Demo-2 mission on May 30.

On Sunday, Aug. 2, having spent 2 months aboard the station, Behnken and Hurley will return home. The Demo-2 mission is designed to test and validate SpaceX’s crew transportation system – from launch to in-orbit, docking, landing, and recovery operations. The SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft, “Endeavor,” is scheduled to undock from the space station at 7:34 p.m, Saturday, Aug 1. EDT, based on favorable weather conditions for splashdown off the coast of Florida.
