It takes only 45 seconds for the SpaceX Dragon capsule to leave the International Space Station and disappear from view. You can never watch something like this on Earth, so watch this event on a quality video. On August 31, SpaceX posted the footage on Twitter.
Video filmed from the front hatch of the space station on August 3 during the last departure of the Dragon. Frames are also available in 4K format. The capsule delivered a number of accessories and scientific equipment for astronauts aboard the station during the July docking. These materials included an experiment designed to study the effect of microgravity on cell growth (ECOSTRESS), which examines the use of water by plants throughout the world. Also delivered a spare part for the device Canadarm2, which captures the spacecraft when docked with the station. It was also a pleasant treat for astronauts in the form of terrestrial ice cream. As a result, Canadarm2 released the capsule, which had been at the station a month, back to Earth. Upon return, Dragon took 1,720 km of cargo from orbit. Watching his soft glide in space, it is difficult to guess how heavy and crowded the capsule is.
