SpaceX and NASA are now in the final stages of preparation for the completion of the Demo-2 Crew Dragon mission, which will allow astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to leave the International Space Station and return to Earth. Behnken and Hurley boarded SpaceX’s first human spacecraft, the Crew Dragon, on May 30, and have been part of the space station staff ever since.

There are potential complications to be aware of-the most significant is Hurricane Isaias, which may affect the availability of suitable landing sites in the ocean, where rescuers must be able to safely rendezvous with the capsule to pick up Hurley and Bacon. Currently, the weather is our task, but if the situation changes, we will provide an update.
