NASA has named the timing of the return of the Crew Dragon ship to Earth

NASA has finally made a decision to return to Earth SpaceX's American crewed spacecraft Crew Dragon, which is currently docked with the ISS. The spacecraft undocking from the station is scheduled for Saturday, August 1, 2020, according to the website of the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).


According to the report, undocking is scheduled for August 1 at 19:34 US East Coast time (August 2 at 02:34 Moscow time). After separation from the station, the Crew Dragon ship with astronauts Douglas Harley and Robert Behnken on board, in 19 hours should land in the Atlantic off the coast of Florida.

It is noted that this will be the first landing of an American descent vehicle in 45 years after the completion of the Apollo flight program in 1975.

Recall that the American crewed spacecraft Crew Dragon, developed by SpaceX as part of a commercial contract with NASA, launched to the ISS on May 30, 2020 after a nine-year hiatus due to the closure of the shuttle program. As part of a manned test flight, he delivered astronauts Douglas Harley and Robert Behnken to the ISS.

NASA emphasizes that this flight is the last major test of the Crew Dragon spacecraft before its certification. After receiving the certificate, he will be able to carry out regular commercial manned flights to the ISS.

    They have there their mission to Mars is under threat of disruption, equipment malfunctions, the rover is "overcooled" and put into standby mode, they are trying to regain control over the complex. ..

        There is no Falcon, there were a little tricky things there, so the Windows crashed into a blue screen laughing ... But seriously, the device went into safe mode.

        > Data indicate the spacecraft had entered a state known as safe mode, likely because a part of the spacecraft was a little colder than expected while Mars 2020 was in Earth's shadow. All temperatures are now nominal and the spacecraft is out of Earth's shadow.

        Now everything is fine, they are thinking how to prevent similar incidents in the future.

      Everything was restored long ago.
      One sensor showed a slightly lower temperature than the calculated one, the rover went into safe mode just in case. Now everything has been restored

      What? One Mars rover has been working on Mars for a bunch of years. The second one was sent just the other day and it is still flying. Are you talking about the second or the first? And what does the Mars exploration program have to do with the ISS manned mission by a private company ???

    at last


    It's like writing - Roscosmos has finally made the decision to undo the Union and return it to earth. There initially was ~ 3 months - until August September, if there are no problems.

    If this one splashes down, the next one flies on September 27, with this crew.

        No, it will just finally come out with good performance. For there will be a constant rotation and 4 people 2-3 times a year will import the Yankees + Unions. And not like now, 3 Unions a year.

      And if you don't splash down? Is that with a different crew?
      I didn't understand the meaning of the quadruple photography. An aunt without a spacesuit still somehow looks like a face in a spacesuit, but an Asian without a spacesuit in no way - the other face in a spacesuit has ... too wide a cut of the eyes.

          Everything is correct with you. That photo above depicts the members of the Crew-2 mission, which will take place in February 2021. It's still a long way to it, so they didn't manage to get the studio photo of the new crew overturned.

      Everything with them will be in order; thermal protection has already been worked out dozens of times in practice, as well as the parachute system and control systems.

        The shuttles' thermal protection was also worked out, but how it came out ... I'm not gloating - a successful return to the guys, but there is always room for problems. By the way, when I was informed about the launch of the rover, I thought that this time not everything will go smoothly. There were similar thoughts when launching the dragon. Hope I'm wrong!

          How many launches and successful landings do these two different systems have? ...... so everything suggests that the parachute system wins ......

        The variant of the descent vehicle will splash down, the rescuers of the cosmonauts (astronauts) will take it away, the device will sink after that, and the wolves are fed and the sheep are safe. Will this option suit you?

            Not long to wait. Now they are probably testing all the systems of the Dragon. Let's see. As the pilot told me, it's not difficult to take off, but you have to be able to land.

    Although I am not a fan of Musk, I am worried about two astronauts! So good luck with the splashdown, I hope for success
    Especially ardent "judge" Musk excites me. In the beginning, they said that the rockets would not fly. When the missiles flew, they said that they would not fly with pilots for a long time. When they flew into the slope with the pilots, they began to repeat "until they sat down, there is nothing to be happy about." And for every success, they find a reason to belittle the merits. Musk, with great support from NASA, has already achieved what America has not been able to afford for the past 9 years. This is a great achievement for them. Similar for us would be, creating a new, completely our own space station.

      It will not burn because the thermal protection of the control system is the parachute system, which is maximally unified with the cargo Dragon - the truck flew and returned almost two dozen times.

          The death of the shuttles in the first case was the collar of the annular nozzle of the TTRD nozzle of the side booster, which had become chilled from a sharp cold snap, due to which the main fuel tank burned out with a subsequent explosion. in the second case, the thermal protection blocks of the main tank at the start came off and damaged the thermal protection of the Shuttle wing, which led to the combustion of it when it entered the dense layers of the atmosphere - Dragon 2 has nothing like this when it is put into orbit. And in comparison with the Shuttles created according to the technologies of the 70s, the Dragon 2 is much more perfect in materials and elaboration.

            Yes, all this is known, there was no point in repeating. Nevertheless, people died ... in the first case, the launch had to be canceled ... in the second, they just hoped that everything would be ok, although they knew about the damage before landing. As now, they said that everything will be ok. I hope everything will be fine ... 6-8 hours left emnip

    How about our bet with you on May 16, to self-ban for half a year if the Cru Dregon doesn't fly on May 27? Forgot?

    Don't lie so cheaply.

    Find a man in yourself and behave yourself with dignity.

    Our bet has unambiguous conditions:
    Me: Let's bet. If astronauts on Dragon fly to the ISS and return, will you self-keep here for half a year?
    You: Come on. I demand the same conditions on your part. Weak?
    Me: Agreed.

    Landing will take place today, August 2nd. If the astronauts survive, you will self-ban for half a year, if not, then I will self-ban.

      As I see it, you have no shame or conscience.

      Your pearls? I accepted the conditions and won on a fair bet. For your part, you are now proposing something new when you have not fulfilled the conditions of the old one. You are a notorious liar, my friend, without shame and conscience. However, I have already said that. negative And about the neighbor's cow. Do you have any other analogies? Scanty, constantly the same thing. laughing Do you live according to the training manual?

        Yes, these screenshots are pretty clear. And you, orionvitt, have lost this bet. Have the courage not to twist the fifth point, but to fulfill your word.

          The conversation was about the fact that on May 27 they will not fly. They didn't fly.
          The last line. That is why this tovarishch offered me a bet.

            The conversation could go about anything, the wording of the bet was given in a completely explicit and self-sufficient form. And consent to it is also given explicitly, with a quote from the proposed wording.

              Again. The conversation was about a specific flight, scheduled for a specific date. Everyone was waiting for the flight scheduled for May 27. The conversation was on the 16th. Comrade, offered me a bet, I agreed. On the 27th, no one flew. What is not clear. And to talk about flights of Americans in general, like someday they still fly off, you know, a finger in the sky. Well, we flew, so what, but on the 30th. Let's argue with you that someday, people will fly to Mars, or closer to the Moon.

                What a shame. Although you are no stranger, apparently. As well as changing shoes in a jump. All the best.

                  Yes, I'm looking at you too. And you do not have to be ill, you are two-faced.

    Is everything all right with your head?
    In the same place, the Russians in the white agreement spelled out "fly to the ISS and back", that you accepted and linked my similar responsibility, where I will selflessly, to which I agreed.

      And I will answer you, you who do not remember ours. Why did you offer a bet?
      Read the last line. I repeat that on the 27th, they did not fly.

    You are some kind of completely alternatively gifted.

    I wrote to you:
    Let's bet! (And wrote the terms of the bet). You accepted them. Everything is fixed.


    Personally, I don’t want to force you to make a bet, because I am generally squeamish to communicate with you now, but the fact remains that you have publicly merged from fulfilling the conditions of the bet, that it will not be difficult for me to remind users of the site at the right time. You are not a man.
    With you I have everything.
