SpaceX Dragon cargo craft leaves ISS after successful delivery mission


A SpaceX cargo craft departed the International Space Station on Sunday after a successful mission to deliver scientific equipment and other supplies. The SpaceX-CRS-16 Dragon transported more than 2,500 kilograms (5,600 pounds) of cargo to the space station and orbited Earth for five weeks. The Dragon undocked from the space station’s Harmony Module and is due to splashdown off the California coast on Monday morning. Once the craft is retrieved, it will be the first-ever night splashdown and recovery of a Dragon vehicle.
