Dragon Returns to Earth for CRS-25 Mission
SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft completed its 25th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-25) mission to and from the International Space Station for NASA, successfully returning to Earth and splashing down off the coast of Florida on Saturday, August 20 at 2:53 p.m. ET.
Dragon undocked from the International Space Station on Friday, August 19 at 11:05 a.m. ET and then performed three burns of its Draco thrusters to move away from the orbiting laboratory. After an approximate 28-hour journey, the spacecraft re-entered Earth's atmosphere and deployed its two drogue and four main parachutes for a soft water landing off the coast of Florida.
