The overall goal of the BLAST mission is to operate a custom-built scintillator cosmic ray detector in low Earth orbit as well as to demonstrate a gravity gradient boom as a passive attitude stabilization approach.

The satellite will be launched as a secondary payload aboard SpaceX Mission 30, from Cape Canaveral, no earlier than March 4, 2024.

I may have lost track. There were 6 from 21-26 then three more were announced in December 2020. When where and how many more CRS2 have been announced/contracted for?

An additional six were awarded in March 2022. So they now have contracted up to CRS-35.

SpX-31 is also listed with the date "Jun 2024", so that may be enough to start the SpX-31 thread.

LEO is the ocean, not an island (let alone a continent). We create cruise liners to ride the oceans, not artificial islands in the middle of them. We need a physical place, which has physical resources, to make our future out there.

DORA is part of ELaNa 51 per this document, therefore it's safe to assume that all the other listed cubesats will be on this flight

Is this launch definitely assigned to LC-39A, as currently listed on NextSF?  Might it launch from SLC-40?

Cross-post:

However, Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) is still the only launchpad that can support Dragon flights. Due to recent schedule adjustments, SLC-40’s crew access tower is now unlikely to support a Dragon mission until at least March 2024.

Crew-8 launches from LC-39A.

Spx-30 launch should now be NET mid March, assuming SLC-40 is not yet ready for Cargo Dragon late-load.
From the press conference:

Crew-8 launch in late February, after IM-1 launch window.
<snip>
Edit/add; already reported in-thread: Bill Harwood asks for more specificity about timing of IM-1 and Crew-8 launches.
If IM-1 launches February 14, then Crew-8 could launch as early as February 29 or March 1.
If IM-1 cannot launch during its February window, then Crew-8 could launch as early as February 22.

There is a drawing of what I assume is a payload to be carried in the trunk to be mounted on the exterior of ISS.

What is it?  I looked through the list of ISS external payloads on Gunter's website and no future payloads seemed to match.

It matches this line drawing of a Pump Module with the cover taken off, that I've borrowed from Wikipedia. I've seen a few mentions over the last 2-3 years of a "Mini Pump Module" - possibly it's that?

Per NextSpaceflight this is ASDS. Should be RTLS, correct?
