SpaceX Dragon Endeavour Spacecraft Relocation | International Space Station

SpaceX Dragon Endeavour Spacecraft Relocation | International Space Station

The SpaceX Dragon Endeavour spacecraft, with four crew members, backs away from the International Space Station. Dragon switched ports moving from the Harmony module's forward port to its space-facing port during the relocation maneuver.

On Thursday, May 2, 2024, Expedition 71 crew members NASA astronauts Matthew Dominick, Michael Barratt, and Jeanette Epps, as well as Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin of Russia, entered the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft and relocated it to another port to make room for the upcoming arrival of NASA’s Boeing Crew Flight Test Starliner spacecraft. Dragon undocked from the Harmony module’s forward-facing port at 8:57 a.m. EDT and autonomously redocked to the module’s space-facing port at 9:46 a.m.
