SpaceX Dragon cargo ship, the last of its kind, returns to Earth from space station – Space.com

A commercial Dragon cargo ship returned to Earth Tuesday (April 7), wrapping up a successful trip to International Space Station that heralded the end of one era and the start of another for its SpaceX builders. 

The uncrewed Dragon CRS-20 spacecraft was released from the station’s robotic arm at 9:06 a.m. EDT (1306 GMT) today as both spacecraft sailed high over Vietnam. It was just a moment, but marked the last time a robotic arm will ever catch or release a SpaceX Dragon.
