To resupply the scientists at the International Space Station with necessities of life like food and all, NASA and SpaceX carried out a cargo space flight that successfully ended on Sunday afternoon last weekend.
Zoom, the Dragon spacecraft hit the Pacific Ocean over a few hundred miles west of Baja California, Mexico on Sunday. The flight was a crucial step from NASA's side to help the space program continue successfully.
As told by NASA, they sent Dragon via a ship to a port near Los Angeles. There some cargo was removed and then it was sent back to SpaceX in McGregor in Texas.
As far as this cargo is concerned, it includes the sample of research that crew of ISS collected during their stay in the space.
As said by NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, "With a big splash in the Pacific Ocean today, we are reminded American ingenuity is alive and well and keeping our great nation at the cutting edge of innovation and technology development".
NASA further stated that this Space Shuttle took almost one year to complete its initial cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. And it is quite amazing to know that this shuttle belongs to a private firm.
