U.S. Dragon spacecraft returns to Earth from space station.
09:54

On May 18, 2014 at 19:05 UTC the American “Dragon” unmanned supply spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific Ocean. The “Dragon” is a commercial spacecraft operated by U.S. space company SpaceX. The “Dragon” cargo spacecraft fell into the ocean about 480 kilometers west of Baja California, where it was retrieved by SpaceX engineers. It was the company's third contracted cargo resupply mission to the ISS (CRS-3 flight). CRS means Commercial Resupply Services. According to the U.S. space agency, a recovery boat will carry the spacecraft to a port near Los Angeles, where it will be prepared for a return journey to SpaceX's test facility in McGregor, Texas, for processing. Dragon carried about 1,588 kg of NASA cargo and science samples from the ISS.
