SpaceX Dragon Cargo Spacecraft Leaves Space Station Bound for Home

A month after delivering more than 2.5 tons of supplies and experiments to the International Space Station, the SpaceX Dragon cargo craft departed the orbital outpost May 18 and headed for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean near Baja, California.

Dragon's departure marked the end of the third commercial resupply flight for SpaceX to the station.
