The capsule will splash down at about 10:14 a.m.in the Pacific Ocean, where recovery forces will retrieve the capsule and its more than 3,800 pounds of cargo and research.

This statement made by the representatives of the Agency NASA.

SpaceX's Dragon cargo ship left the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday and is returning to Earth; the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is broadcasting the journey live. The Dragon then fired its thrusters to separate from the space station.

Once the Dragon spacecraft was a safe distance from the orbiting laboratory, SpaceX flight controllers in Hawthorne, California, sent the command for the Dragon to begin its deorbit burn.

A cargo ship operated by the privately-run USA aerospace company SpaceX departed the International Space Station and is returning to Earth. A variety of technological and biological studies are returning in Dragon. Splashdown will not be broadcast on NASA TV. NASA launched Dragon to the ISS from Cape Canaveral.

This was the 12th contracted cargo resupply mission (CRS-12) for SpaceX. This was the last new Dragon to deliver cargo to the space station.
