Re-Enter the Dragon

by Blog Burger on June 1, 2012

SpaceX’s Dragon space capsule returned to Earth on Thursday, 10 days after it took off into the wild blue yonder to resupply the International Space Station. The capsule touched down in the Pacific Ocean at 11:42 a.m. ET a few hundred miles west of Baja California, Mexico. It will be taken by boat to a port in California near Los Angeles, where it will be prepared for return to SpaceX’s test facility in McGregor, Texas, NASA said. “The SpaceX launch is a milestone for an industry that is growing by leaps and bounds,” CSF’s Alex Saltman said.
