Dragon splashdown on SpX-6 mission (SpaceX) A SpaceX Dragon spacecraft departed from the International Space Station early Thursday and splashed down in the Pacific Ocean several hours later. The Dragon spacecraft, completing the sixth Commercial Resupply Services mission under a SpaceX contract with NASA, was released by the station's robotic arm at 7:04 am EDT (1104 GMT) and departed the vicinity of the ISS. The spacecraft reentered and splashed down in the Pacific about 250 kilometers southwest of Long Beach, California, at 12:42 pm EDT (1642 GMT). The spacecraft returned about 1,400 kilograms of experiments and other equipment from the station. The next Dragon mission to the ISS is scheduled for launch June 26.
