    Earlier on 30 May, the United States conducted their first space launch in ten years, sending a Space X Crew Dragon capsule to the International Space Station. On 31 May, the vehicle successfully docked with the ISS.

    The Space X Crew Dragon is undocking from the International Space Station, carrying two US astronauts back to Earth on Sunday. Undocking is expected to take place on 23:34 GMT.

    Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley arrived to the ISS on the same space vehicle they are now boarding to return to Earth.

    In late May, a Space X Crew Dragon capsule marked the first US space launch in a decade, since the suspension of the Space Shuttle Program.
