SpaceX Dragon With  Crew Departs ISS

Private Ax-1 Astronaut

Ax-1's SpaceX Dragon capsule

named Endeavour, undocked from the orbiting lab today (April 24) at 9:10 p.m. EDT (1310 GMT on April 25)

Endeavour and its four

passengers will splash down off the Florida coast on Monday (April 25) at 1:06 p.m. EDT, if all goes according to plan.

Mother Nature delayed the 

capsule's departure from the station several times Ax-1 was  supposed to undock on April 19 and arrive on Earth April 20

Bad weather in the splashdown

 zone pushed things back about 12 hours And these poor conditions persisted, causing additional delays 

Endeavour and the Ax-1 crew 

launched atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on April 8 and arrived at the orbiting lab on April 9, becoming the first-ever all-private crewed mission to visit the station. 

The mission was organized by

 Houston company Axiom Space and is led by López-Alegría, a former NASA astronaut who now serves as Axiom's vice president of business development.
