(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.
