Dragon returns to port

After steaming back to the mainland from Sunday's landing zone off Baja California, the recovery vessel carrying SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft arrived at the Port of Los Angeles early this morning to deliver the time-sensitive science specimens returned to Earth from the International Space Station. The capsule will be transported to SpaceX's test facility in McGregor, Texas, for further unloading of cargo ferried home in the first operational commercial supply run to the station.
