Cape Canaveral. After around six weeks at the International Space Station, a “Dragon” freighter loaded with around 2,000 kilograms of materials for scientific experiments has undocked from the ISS.
The unmanned freighter made its way back to Earth on Monday (local time), the US space agency Nasa said. He is scheduled to land in the sea off the coast of Florida on Wednesday.

The “Dragon” was launched to the ISS at the end of November. On board the freighter had, among other things, solar panels for power supply, a special type of tomato for astronauts to eat healthier and a blood test that is intended to facilitate medical diagnosis of people in space, as well as supplies for the crew of the ISS.
It was the 26th resupply mission by Elon Musk’s commercial operator SpaceX in collaboration with Nasa. SpaceX’s first Dragon capsule flew to the ISS in 2012.
