The month of June registered some significant departures from the International Space Station (ISS) during June.  First to leave was the DRAGON CRS-17 cargo spacecraft which was unberthed at 1235 GMT on 3 June 2019. It formally undocked from the ISS at 1601 GMT when it was released by the robot arm ahead of its re-entry and splashdown. DRAGON CRS-17 fired its engines to deorbit at about 2056 GMT. The trunk, containing the old CATS and SCAN experiments, was jettisoned and destroyed on reentry about 2120 GMT. The reusable capsule C113 landed in the Pacific at about 121W 32N at roughly 2150 GMT.

The PROGRESS MS-10 unmanned expendable cargo craft undocked from the Zvezda module at 0840 GMT on 4 June ahead of its reentry. After a deorbit burn at 1146 GMT on 4 June 2019, it reentered the atmosphere and fragments fell in the Pacific east of New Zealand at 1229 GMT.
