At 9:51 a.m. CDT (1451 GMT) on Thursday (May 31), SpaceX flight controllers in Hawethorne, Calif. commanded the Dragon spacecraft to begin a nine minute, 50 second deorbit burn, slowing the capsule's velocity by 224 miles per hour to set the unmanned craft on a path to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere.
The Dragon is scheduled to splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of Baja, Calif., at 10:44 a.m. CDT (1544 GMT).
