SpaceX's Dragon cargo ship splashes down in Pacific

This is a good thing! Nobody was injured in the splash because this drop was an unmanned mission to provide goods from the International Space Station back to Earth. Additionally, miscellaneous tests were conducted on Dragon, mainly involving cell reaction to spatial conditions.
