SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft splashdown

SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft successfully departed the International Space Station at 4:07am ET and began its gentle descent into the atmosphere soon after. It’s the home straight for the historic private spaceflight company as it concludes its first ever supply mission to the heavens. It’s due to splash down in the Pacific Ocean, a few hundred miles off the coast of southern California at 11:44am ET. If you’d like to watch the craft being retrieved from its watery berth then head on past the break, with coverage set to begin from 10:15am ET.
