The SpaceX Dragon cargo ship returned to Earth on Wednesday delivering critical samples from technology and biology studies conducted in space, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said on Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The delivered tests include research in the field of nanotechnology and a batch of human research samples, according to the press release.

"A SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific Ocean… with more than 3,700 pounds of NASA cargo, science and technology demonstration samples from the International Space Station," NASA stated.

The cargo ship arrived at the International Space Station and docked at the Harmony utility hub on April 10 after a historic launch from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in the US state of Florida.

The next Dragon mission is expected to be launched in June and may reuse the Falcon 9 rocket, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said.
