SpX-20 CARGO DRAGON RETURN TO EARTH, Apr 7, 2020

(NASA TV coverage begins 8:45 am ET)

Update, April 3:  NASA just announced that this has been delayed by a day.  It now will depart and reenter on April 7.  NASA TV coverage begins at 8:45 am ET, but the announcement did not give times for undocking or splashdown, but Bob Christy  (@zarya_info) calculates splashdown at 18:52 UTC (14:52 EDT).

Original Entry: SpaceX’s 20th cargo mission to the International Space Station (ISS) will come to an end on April 6, 2020.  The Cargo Dragon spacecraft, loaded with more than 4,000 pounds of scientific experiments and other cargo needed back on Earth, will be unberthed from the ISS using Canadarm2 and splash down in the Pacific Ocean.

NASA TV coverage of the unberthing operation begins at 9:30 am ET.  It will be released at 9:52 am ET.

Splashdown is at 3:40 pm ET, but will not be covered by NASA TV.
