Tampa, Fl. (Florida News Network)-Just before 8:30 Wednesday night, a SpaceX Dragon cargo ship splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico, about 50 miles west of Hudson. The ship returned with more than four thousand pounds of science experiments. ISS research teams tweeted the return, "now sets into motion rapid operations to return the samples and experiments back to researchers around the world". The splashdown completed SpaceX’ 21st at space station resupply mission and the first return of a cargo resupply spacecraft off the coast of Florida.
