RRM end of mission and reentry|
On March 19, 2017, the SpaceX CRS-10 Dragon cargo ship departed from the ISS with numerous items for return and disposal, among them MISSE and RRM (Robotic Refueling Mission) payloads. MISSE and RRM were in the trunk of Dragon to be destroyed when the trunk separated during Dragon's return to Earth. About 2500 kg of NASA cargo and science and technology demonstration samples (return items) were also installed into the pressurized section of Dragon, including a long list of experiments to be removed from Dragon once she is back on Earth. — At the required velocity and altitude, Dragon's drogue parachutes were deployed, followed by Dragon's main parachutes, easing the vehicle to a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California. Dragon was transported to the port of Los Angeles, prior to a trip to Texas for cargo removal.
- The MISSE and RRM payloads were installed on ELC-1 (ExPRESS Logistics Carrier-1). They had to be removed for the new payloads (STP-H5 equipmment) which were flown to the ISS by the SpaceX CRS-10 Dragon cargo mission, launched on Feb. 19, 2017.
