SpaceX Dragon cargo returns to Earth with scientific experiments

SpaceX Dragon cargo resupply spacecraft returned to Earth earlier Tuesday with scientific experiments and other cargo, completing the company's 30th contracted cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) for NASA, reported Xinhua.

The spacecraft undocked at 1:10 p.m. Eastern Time Sunday from the space station's Harmony module to start its journey back home.

Dragon splashed down at 1:38 a.m. Eastern Time Tuesday off the coast of Tampa, Florida, according to NASA. The spacecraft carried more than 4,100 pounds of valuable scientific experiments and other cargo back to Earth.

Dragon was launched March 21 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

It delivered about 6,000 pounds of research investigations, crew supplies, and station hardware to ISS.
