A private capsule carrying cargo from the International Space Station is on its way back to Earth after being released Tuesday from the station's 57-foot robotic arm.

Flight controllers in NASA's Mission Control Center in Houston grappled the unmanned SpaceX Dragon capsule with the arm at 4:10 a.m. ET and moved it away from the Earth-facing port of the station's U.S. Harmony module.
