Crew Dragon splashdown on Demo-1 (NASA/KSC) SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft successfully splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean Friday morning, ending a successful uncrewed test flight to the International Space station. The spacecraft undocked from the station at 2:32 am EST (0732 GMT), nearly five days after docking there, and splashed down several hundred kilometers off the Florida coast at 8:45 am EST (1345 GMT). Both NASA and SpaceX said they were pleased with the test flight, which demonstrated many key systems, and found no issues that would pose a challenge to performing a crewed test flight later this year.
