Cargo Dragon returns to Earth, bringing CRS-24 mission to a close


Cargo Dragon returns to Earth, bringing CRS-24 mission to a close After a month-long stay at the International Space Station, NASA and SpaceX have successfully returned the CRS-24 Cargo Dragon back to Earth. Ground controllers commanded the undocking of the Dragon spacecraft from the Harmony module’s zenith – or space-facing – port at 10:35 AM EST (15:35 UTC) on Sunday, January 23.
