SpaceX crew departs International Space Station

(NBC, KYMA/KECY) - The International Space Station is a little less crowded Saturday.

The four members of the SpaceX Crew-5 mission departed the I.S.S. early Saturday morning on board a SpaceX dragon capsule.

NASA astronauts Josh Cassada and Nicole Mann, Russian cosmonaut Anna Kikina and Japan's Koichi Wakata undocked from the I.S.S. at 2:20am EST.

The departure had been delayed by NASA twice due to weather concerns.

The capsule is expected to splashdown just after 8:00pm EST after spending five months on board the I.S.S.
