After nearly a month orbiting the Earth attached to the International Space Station, the SpaceX Dragon capsule containing Dr. Abba Zubair's stem cell research detached from the station and returned to Earth. The Dragon was recovered in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southern California, on March 19. After SpaceX turns over the contents of the Dragon to NASA, the research will be sent back to Dr. Zubair’s lab at Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus for analysis and further scientific study.
