The delivery ship SpaceX Cargo Dragon makes the 1st autonomous disconnection from the space station



SpaceX Dragon cargo ship made its first autonomous disconnection from the International Space Station on Tuesday (January 12th), marking the beginning of a return to Earth this week.

The historic event, the first disconnection from an unwrapped U.S. delivery ship, saw SpaceX’s CRS-21 Cargo Dragon retreat from the Harmony module’s spaceport at 9:05 a.m. EST (1405 GMT). Live reviews on NASA television showed the spacecraft maneuvering into orbit as it left the station, while the two spacecraft floated high over the South Atlantic.
