SpaceX and NASA are targeting 7:34 PM EDT on August 1 (5:04 AM IST on August 2) for Crew Dragon to autonomously undock from the Space Station with the two astronauts aboard the spacecraft.
"We won't leave the space station without some good landing opportunities in front of us, good splashdown weather", Behnken was quoted as saying by AP.
The biggest question is if the weather will hold.
NASA is now monitoring a potential hurricane that could change the current plans, as it edges towards the South of Florida this weekend.
SpaceX and NASA plan to land Doug Hurley and Bob Benken in the Gulf of Mexico in the company's Dragon capsule on Sunday afternoon. Since then the United States has relied on Russia's space program to launch its astronauts to the space station.
Elon Musk sent NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the ISS on May 30 but their return could be delayed due to a huge tropical storm. It was the first flight of a crew from the USA after almost a decade. Yet, the mission has been dubbed Demo-2 because SpaceX had earlier carried out an uncrewed test flight, which had been dubbed Demo-1.
Behnken said he will have a few tips for his wife, Meghan McArthur, who is scheduled to sit in his seat on the Dragon during a flight to the International Space Station later this year, notably "where best to pack all your personal items so that you can get to them conveniently". Hoping to galvanize a commercial space marketplace, NASA awarded almost $8 billion to SpaceX and Boeing Co collectively in 2014 to develop dueling space capsules, experimenting with a contract model that allows the space agency to buy astronaut seats from the two companies. The Dragon Crew flight carrying Behnken and Hurley are SpaceX's first crewed test flight. "We could stay up here longer".
"As you can imagine, even if you made a decision to go deep sea fishing one day, and you've lived on Earth your whole life, people get seasick".
The astronauts will come home in the same SpaceX Dragon capsule that took them up on May 30. "But we have confidence that the teams on the ground are of course watching that much more closely than we are".
"You have to remember this is a test flight", NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said from Kennedy Space Centre.
Dragon Endeavour has two sets of parachutes will that deploy once back inside Earth's atmosphere to slow the capsule before splashdown. Behnken and Hurley are scheduled to return to Earth on August 2.
"My son is six years old", says Behnken, "and I can tell from the videos that I get, and talking to him on the phone, that he's changed a lot even in just the couple of months that we've been up here".
