""Dragon departing." The @SpaceX Dragon Endeavour undocked and separated from @Space_Station. @AstroBehnken and @Astro_Doug are on their way home to planet Earth," NASA said in a tweet.

Hurley and Behnken arrived at the orbiting laboratory in the Crew Dragon on May 31 following a launch from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on May 30. This is SpaceX's final test flight and is providing data on the performance of the Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon spacecraft and ground systems, as well as in-orbit, docking, splashdown, and recovery operations.
