CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) – Astronauts aboard the International Space Station expelled Space Exploration Technologies‘ unmanned Dragon load capsule on Thursday, a final miracle for a pioneering blurb exam flight.
Dragon was a initial secretly owned spaceship to strech a space station, a plan of 15 nations. It is scheduled to dash down in a Pacific Ocean southwest of Los Angeles during 11:44 a.m. EDT (1544 GMT).
Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, is one of dual firms hired by NASA to fly load to a hire following a retirement of a space shuttles final year.
Using a station’s drudge arm, astronauts isolated a plug from a berthing pier during 4:07 a.m. EDT (0807 GMT) and expelled it during 5:49 EDT (0949 GMT) as a booster sailed 250 miles above Earth.
