First-ever space-made HIV drug crystals touch down near Utah

California-based startup Varda Space Industries has made history by successfully returning samples of the drug made in space. 
The company’s in-space manufacturing capsule faced months of orbital confinement due to re-entry denial from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
After obtaining the necessary approvals, the re-entry capsule safely landed in the Utah desert at the Utah Test and Training Range on Wednesday, February 21.
