SpaceX Crew Dragon Relocates at the International Space Station

1 min read

NASA’s SpaceX Crew-2 astronauts on the International Space Station will board Crew Dragon Endeavour on Wednesday, July 21, to relocate the spacecraft to another docking port. The maneuver will free up up a “parking space” for the uncrewed Boeing Starliner spacecraft, currently targeted to launch on its second Orbital Flight Test on July 30.

Starliner’s arrival on July 31 will mark the first time two different U.S. commercial spacecraft built for crew will be docked to our orbiting laboratory at the same time.

Live NASA TV coverage of Crew Dragon relocation begins at 6:30 a.m. EDT (10:30 UTC), with undocking at 6:45 a.m. (10:45 UTC) and redocking at 7:32 a.m. (11:32 UTC).
