SpaceX’s latest expedition to the International Space Station has made its way back to Earth in another success for the company.
The company’s Falcon 9 rocket lifted off a month ago, carrying the Dragon spacecraft destined for a cargo and supplies-rendezvous with the ISS.
After completing its mission successfully, the craft was released from the station early on Sunday for its return journey, finally splashing down in the Pacific six hours later, according to SpaceX.
“This marked SpaceX’s first launch from Kennedy Space Center’s historic pad, and the first launch from LC-39A since July 8, 2011 when Atlantis lifted off for the final flight of the Shuttle Program,” says the company.
