Some astronauts will soon be coming home.

NASA is set to provide coverage of Crew-5 team’s return from the International Space Station early Saturday.

According to NASA, the crew is scheduled to undock from the space station at 2:05 a.m., with a splashdown time of 9:19 p.m., which will wrap up a nearly six-month science mission for the astronauts.

The Dragon spacecraft, named Endurance by the agency’s SpaceX Crew-3 astronauts on its initial launch, will autonomously undock and depart from the ISS, ultimately splashing down at one of seven landing zones off the coast of Florida, NASA officials said.
