There are contents.
You will be able to watch the departure on NASA TV. Below, we have the details on how to watch.
7,700 pounds of supplies and scientific experiments were originally carried by the Dragon when it arrived at the station. 4,400 pounds of completed scientific experiments will be carried on the return leg of its journey, including the results of research into growing plants in space and the use of microbes for potential medicines.
The results from the Astrorad vest test, which is a radiation shielding vest that the crew have been wearing to test for comfort and fit while on the station, will be included in the Dragon's cargo. The Artemis I mission, which was uncrewed, tested the effectiveness of the Astrorad vests on blocking the dangerous space radiation which future moon explorers can expect.
On Monday, NASA will broadcast coverage of the Dragon's departure from the space station. The coverage starts at 4:45pm. The time is 1:45p.m. The docking is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Monday. The time is 2p.m. There is a time and a place.
