What was the Crew Dragon reentry and touchdown mass for the mission that landed August 2, 2020?

(I found that Soyuz Descent Module has a reentry mass of 2850 kg.) See: http://www.braeunig.us/space/specs/soyuz.htm

I just want to compare the two landing modules.

  • $\begingroup$ I think they mentioned the mass at undocking was 24,000 lbs (includes trunk) $\endgroup$ Aug 2, 2020 at 20:25

    $\begingroup$ Wikipedia notes the mass at "NASA live stream commentators made note of capsule mass with trunk of 27000lbs and 21000lbs without the trunk". This statement does not include a timestamped link; though that would probably be somewhat easy to find as this was mentioned on the stream within 20 minutes of the undocking occuring. $\endgroup$ Aug 2, 2020 at 21:52

NASA says:

After trunk separation and the deorbit burn are complete, the Crew Dragon capsule weighs approximately 21,200 pounds [~9600 kg].
