SpaceX’s Dragon on the way to the harbor after a successful splashdown

Normally, SpaceX cargo craft returns to Earth. Normally this would have been the big news of the day, but with the launch and splashdown of IXV, and the launch of DSCOVR followed by the Falcon-9 booster soft-landing, Dragon’s return to Earth becomes third (fifth?) fiddle.

But it did return safely to Earth, and with about 3600 pounds of cargo from the ISS.

Basically, a great day overall for New Space.
