"Dragon is due to spend just under a week berthed at the space
station. On Thursday (May 31), the vehicle will be packed with
completed science experiments and equipment ready to send back to
Earth. The capsule is equipped with a heat shield to withstand its
fiery re-entry through Earth's atmosphere, and is due to be recovered
by a team of ships in the Pacific Ocean."

If only it were packed with 500 kilograms of gold... LOL  Seriously,
this is the first time I had heard that it wasn't a one way trip.

Future versions will be able to land the capsule on land...
Very cool, but unnecessarily complex for ore delivery... ;-)
