All but four of the…the 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 Dragon landing TFRs for #Inspiration4 have been withdrawn. Resilience will be landing tomorrow evening not too far from where it launched.

Attached: a TFR and screenshot of part of the aborted cancelation tweetstorm from the SpaceTFRs console.

The splashdown site for Dragon is approximately 44 km offshore, near Cape Canaveral. Splashdown is set for 7:06pm ET.

Recovery ship GO Searcher will be in position, alongside the US Coastguard to keep wayward boaters away.

Look at our Mission Specialist @ChrisSembroski capturing pictures from orbit through Dragon’s cupola!
