Don’t miss the thrilling conclusion of SpaceX’s first mission to the International Space Station. Tune in May 31 starting at 12:30 a.m. PDT to see live feed coverage of the Dragon spacecraft unberthing from the ISS, deorbiting, and splashing down on Earth.

According to NASA’s current schedule, Dragon will be released from the space station’s Candarm2 at around 2:35 a.m. PDT. After release, the spacecraft will fire its engines three times to move away from the ISS, taking about 10 minutes to get ready for a deorbital burn.

Splashdown in the Pacific Ocean approximately 490 miles southwest of Los Angeles is expected five and a half hours after the release. NASA TV will cover the event starting at 7:15 a.m. PDT, with the final splashdown likely around 8:44 a.m. NASA does not expect that the splashdown will be within range of live television.
