Japanese Experiment Module Airlock (JEMAL) Operations for the German Space Agency (DLR) Earth Sensing Imaging Spectrometer (DESIS): Last night the JEMAL Slide Table was extended to the exterior of the ISS and the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) and Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) were used to remove DESIS from the Slide Table and install it on the Multiple User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) external facility. Today the Slide Table was brought back into the JEM and the Payload Mounting Assembly (PMA) hardware removed from it.
TechEdSat-8 has been added to the launch manifest for SpaceX-16, which is scheduled to be launched on December 1, 2018
TechEdSat-8 would be jettisoned from the ISS on January 15, 2018, to begin a three-month mission.

Three ultra-small satellites to be installed in "Konomori" Unit 7 were handed over to JAXA. It was ready for launch and shipped to Tanegashima!
"Kotonori" Unit 7 has ultra-small satellites jointly developed by Kyushu Institute of Technology and Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, as well as ultra-small satellites developed by Lehman Sat Spaces and Shizuoka University, It is housed in a satellite mounting case of JAXA 's small satellite release mechanism (J - SSOD) and transported to ISS. It is the tenth mission as CubeSat release using J - SSOD which we have been implementing since 2012. As for SPATIUM-I, it is based on a strategic partnership agreement between JAXA and Kyushu Institute of Technology to release ultra-small satellite from "Kibo" Japan Experiment Module.

Ground Activities:JEMRMS EFU Adapter Unstow [Planned overnight]
Two-Day Look Ahead:Thursday, 09/06:JEM Exposed Facility High Definition TV Camera Unit install on EFU Adapter on JEM AL Slide Table
Finally, the orbital lab is due to raise its orbit tonight in the second of three planned maneuvers to prepare for a crew swap in October.

A new, replacement camera was subsequently installed on the EFU Adapter in preparation for tomorrow’s JEM Airlock depressurization and Monday’s installation of the HDTV unit.

Japanese firm to launch love satellitesSep 03, 2018, 07.27 PM ISTTokyo, Sep 3 (IANS) A Japanese start-up linked to the University of Tsukuba is set to launch small satellites with commemorative titanium plaques carrying love messages into space by the end of 2019, the company said on Monday.Those interested would be able to engrave messages of their choice on the plaques, which would be 1.8 centimeters long and 0.8 centimeter wide, set to be carried to space aboard the satellites and orbit around the Earth for around two years before being destroyed, Efe reported.Around 10 centimeters in size, the CubeSat satellites would be able to carry up to 600 pure titanium plaques and would be transported to the International Space Station (ISS) by a rocket of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.In the ISS, the astronauts stationed there will take photographs of the ultra-small satellite which would be then sent to the couples to prove that their messages have reached space, Warspace CEO Toshihiro Kameda said.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have postponed the launch of the H-IIB Launch Vehicle No. 7(H-IIB F7) which carries aboard the H-II Transfer Vehicle "KOUNOTORI7" (HTV7), the cargo transporter to the International Space Station (ISS) from the JAXA Tanegashima Space Center. In Guam, where there is one of JAXA's tracking stations, adverse weather including strong winds caused by a typhoon is predicted for the day before and launch day. The launch was originally scheduled for September 11, 2018.
