PORT CANAVERAL, Florida — Just before dusk on Saturday evening (April 23), south of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, SpaceX’s Dragon capsule recovery boat, named Megan, left port.

Space.com managed to capture some views from a helicopter of Megan as it headed out into the Atlantic Ocean, bound for a spot near the splashdown zone of the Dragon that flew the historic Axiom-1 (Ax-1) mission. Tea SpaceX recovery ship, formerly named GO Searcher, serves as a ride not only for the Ax-1 Dragon but also its four-person crew.
