SpaceXs uncrewed Dragon freight spacecraft crashed at 2:53 p.m. EDT (11:53 a.m. PDT) Saturday, August 20, north of Cape Canaveral off the Florida coast, marking the return of the businesss 25th contracted freight resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) for NASA The spacecraft brought more than 4,000 pounds of valuable scientific experiments and other cargo back to Earth.
Dragon was released from the forward port of the International Space Stations Harmony module at 11:05 a.m. on Friday, August 19, while the ISS was flying 259 miles over the Pacific Ocean. It got to the spaceport station on July 16, following a launch two days previously on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASAs Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

A few of the clinical examinations returned by Dragon consist of:
August 19, 2022: International Space Station Configuration. 4 spaceships are docked at the spaceport station including the SpaceX Crew Dragon Freedom and Russias Soyuz MS-21 team ship and the Progress 80 and 81 resupply ships. Credit: NASA
Spacesuit cooling: Spacesuit Evaporation Rejection Flight Experiment (SERFE) demonstrates a new innovation using water evaporation to eliminate heat from spacesuits and preserve appropriate temperature levels for team members and devices during spacewalks. The investigation figures out whether microgravity affects efficiency and evaluates the innovations effect on contamination and corrosion of spacesuit material.
Cell signaling in microgravity: The ESA (European Space Agency) sponsored examination Bioprint FirstAid Handheld Bioprinter (Bioprint FirstAid) makes it possible for the fast use of formerly ready bio-inks, including the clients own cells, to form a band-aid patch in the case of injury.

Areas effect on products: The Materials International Space Station Experiment-15-NASA (MISSE-15-NASA) experiment tests, qualifies, and quantifies the effect of the low-Earth orbit environment on brand-new materials and parts, such as spacecraft materials and wearable radiation protection. Effective experiment results could have applications both in the extreme environments of area and in the world.
