Officials say the world's first commercial supply ship to visit the International Space Station weathered its maiden voyage well.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk discussed the flight as they viewed the Dragon spacecraft at a Texas rocket factory Wednesday.
Last month, the SpaceX Dragon delivered 1,000 pounds of provisions to the space station and returned with 1,400 pounds of old equipment.
The California-based SpaceX is the first private business to send a cargo ship to the space station.
Bolden said the capsule gets "beaten up" during re-entry, but is robust. The capsule appeared to be in good condition while on display at the factory in McGregor, about 130 miles southwest of Dallas.
SpaceX hopes to launch another capsule in September.
