SpaceX Dragon Capsule Heads Home from ISS Early Sunday

20 March 2017, 12:42 | Winston Chapman

The capsule left the station after being released by astronauts Thomas Pesquet (of France) and Shane Kimbrough (of NASA) using a robotic arm.

The Dragon cargo craft returned to the Earth with approximately 3,600 pounds of science experiments and other gear from space station.

A SpaceX reusable cargo ship splashed down in the Pacific Ocean safely on Sunday, ending a mission to supply astronauts on the International Space Station, the company said.

Dragon's thrusters will be fired to move the spacecraft a safe distance from the station before SpaceX flight controllers in Hawthorne, California, command its deorbit burn about 10 a.m.

Dragon is headed to port for a cargo handover to @NASA.

"Everything from stem cells that could help us understand how human cancers start and spread after being exposed to near zero-gravity, to equipment that is paving the way toward servicing and refuelling satellites while they're in orbit will be on board", NASA said in a statement.
