The Dragon CRS 1-09 (Dragon CRS-9) cargo craft was unberthed from the Harmony module of the International Space Station (ISS) on 25 August 2016. It was released at 1011 GMT the following day into orbit. After a deorbit burn and trunk separation, the return module re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere as planned and made a parachute arrested splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, near Baja California at 1547 GMT on 26 August. Aboard the craft was 1,350 kg of cargo including various experimental samples.
