SpaceX's upgraded Cargo Dragon supply ship makes 1st Atlantic splashdown

A SpaceX resupply spacecraft returned to Earth from the Worldwide Area Station Wednesday (Jan. 13), splashing down off the coast of Florida for the primary time ever.

The Dragon CRS-21 mission, SpaceX’s 2 area station cargo for NASA, launched Dec. 6, 2020, with 6,400 lbs. (2,903 kilograms) of provides and science tools for the seven-person crew of Expedition 64. After a one-day delay attributable to unhealthy climate on the zone, the automobile autonomously undocked from the area station for the primary time on Tuesday (Jan. 12), and it splashed down west of Tampa about 35 hours later, at 8:26 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Jan. 13 (0126 Jan. 14 GMT).
