Live: Watch NASA astronauts depart the ISS for SpaceX Crew Dragon splashdown

After a roughly two-month stay on the International Space Station, NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are set to depart in their history-making SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule for a Sunday splashdown.

Saturday afternoon, the duo will board the capsule and prepare for departure, followed by several maneuvers and burns that will position them for a critical Earth re-entry and splashdown about 19 hours later. Teams are targeting just off the coast of Pensacola for splashdown.

You can watch live NASA TV above beginning at 5:30 p.m. Saturday and see live Twitter updates below. 

Here’s the full timeline (all times Eastern):

  • Saturday, 5:30 p.m.: NASA TV begins live broadcast
  • Saturday, 5:45 p.m.: Crew Dragon hatch closure
  • Saturday, 7:34 p.m.: Undock from ISS
  • Sunday, 2 p.m.: Splashdown coverage continues on NASA TV
  • Sunday, 2:48 p.m.: Splashdown off the coast of Pensacola, Florida

NASA TV is expected to stay live throughout the process with some replay interruptions.

This mission, known as Demo-2, marked the first time in nearly a decade that NASA astronauts launched from U.S. soil to the ISS.
