The Crew Dragon-2 astronauts will be on the ISS at the same time as the crew Dragon — 1 crew. The return of the Crew Dragon — 1 spacecraft is scheduled for late April — early May. Crew Dragon-2 is scheduled to return to Earth in the fall, no earlier than October 31. The descent capsule will have to make a soft landing on parachutes in the Atlantic.
