DISCOVERER materials samples return to earth!


The Space X Dragon Cargo has safely undocked and departed from the International Space Station and is due to splashdown on 13th January 2021 in the Gulf of Mexico. On board are a variety of scientific experiments and research carried on the space station, including DISCOVERER’s materials samples, which have been on orbit for just over a year. We’re looking forward to receiving them back for further analysis in the coming months. Many thanks to the Alpha Space’s MISSE facility for enabling this research to happen.
