Dragon Spacecraft Returns to Earth

SpaceX has confirmed its Dragon spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific Ocean at 12:36 p.m. EDT a few hundred miles west of Baja California, Mexico, marking a successful end to the second mission contracted by NASA to deliver and return science investigations and other cargo to and from the International Space Station.

Investigations included among the returned cargo could aid in food production during future long-duration space missions and enhance crop production on Earth.
