Weather permitting, hatch closure is now expected at 6:45 p.m. ET April 24. The departure was delayed Saturday due to weather conditions expected at splashdown, Mashable previously reported.

Splashdown is expected off the coast of Florida at about 1 p.m. Monday, April 25 if all goes well today, according to NASA.
