The Dragon CRS-1 has returned to Earth. The International Space Station’s robot arm unberthed Dragon CRS 1 from the Harmony module at 1119 GMT and released it at 1329 GMT on 28 October 2012.  After making two burns and jettisoning its “trunk”, the Dragon CRS-1 spacecraft re-entered at 1902GMT, splashing down in the Pacific off Baja California at 1922GMT. As part of its NASA contract, the near 1 tonne cargo, including medical samples, will be returned to the Administration. The most urgent medical and biological samples have been retrieved.  The rest will be reovered to SpaceX’s test facility at McGregor, Texas via California.
