NASA: Crew Dragon will land on April 28

The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) website reports that the Crew Dragon manned spacecraft, which docked to the International Space Station (ISS), will land near the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday, April 28.

The Resilience spacecraft will return four people — NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency employee Soichi Noguchi — to Earth.

NASA and SpaceX (the developer of the ship) calculate the time of the Resiliency splashdown at 12.40 pm US East Coast time, on Wednesday, April 28.

“Resilience will land at one of seven target landing zones in the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida,” NASA said.

In addition to astronauts, the Earth from the ISS will be delivered to research materials. The site also reports to NASA that the agency will conduct a live broadcast landing spacecraft Resilience.

Earlier, the Crew Dragon spacecraft docked to the ISS.
