    On 6 December, Cargo Dragon departed on a SpaceX Falcon9 carrier rocket, arriving at the ISS around 24 hours later with more than 6,400 pounds of hardware, research instruments, and crew supplies.

    Sputnik goes live from the International Space Station as the SpaceX CRS-21 Cargo Dragon spacecraft departs from the station on Monday, 11 January, carrying, among other things, findings from scientific research in orbit.

    The spaceship is expected to make a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida around 9 p.m. (02:00 GMT) on Tuesday.
