Dragon splashdown on SpX-5 mission (SpaceX) A SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft carrying nearly 1,700 kilograms of experiments and equipment from the International Space Station left the station Tuesday, splashing down in the Pacific Ocean several hours later. The Dragon spacecraft was released by the station's robotic arm at 2:10 pm EST (1910 GMT) after spending nearly a month attached to the station. The spacecraft departed from the vicinity of the station and reentered several hours later, splashing down in the Pacific Ocean southwest of California at 7:44 pm EST (0044 GMT Wednesday). The Dragon brought back about 1,680 kilograms of cargo from the station, including experiments and other equipment. Dragon carried more than 2,300 kilograms of cargo to the ISS on the fifth of 12 contracted supply missions in January.
