Someone please update the first post to show the spacecraft is C208-3, as shown by the mission patch above.

This SFN article says May 21, though. I'm guessing one of them is a typo. Question is, which one?

Quote
SpaceX’s next cargo delivery to the space station, a mission known as SpaceX CRS-25, is scheduled for launch from Kennedy Space Center on May 21.

EDIT: I contacted Stephen Clark and he clarified that May 21 was a typo. May 1 is correct.

Cross-post: TUMnanoSAT is expected to launch on this mission.

<snip>

Tumnanosat will be launched on SpaceX Dragon:

You're right : Tumnanosat is scheduled on Dragon in May 2022.

The Republic of Moldova will send its own nanosatellite into space, created by students and professors from the Technical University. With its help, Moldovan researchers will be able to collect, for the first time, data on the level of radiation and the concentration of gases in space. Most likely, our satellite will reach the American orbit with the help of SpaceX, a company founded by the famous Elon Musk. This is expected to happen in early May.

The launch of CRS-25 is delayed until June to allow for the OFT-2 mission.https://twitter.com/SciGuySpace/status/1498705660292255749

SFN Launch Schedule update, March 25 (one of many):
Dragon SpX-25 launches on June 7, 2022 at 15:25 UTC (11:25 am EDT) from Kennedy LC-39A, with ASDS landing.



There is a gap, with no known LC-39A launches, between Crew-4 (April 19) and SpX-25.

The USSF-44 launch on Falcon Heavy from LC-39A apparently follows later in June.  (End of June?)

We delivered BeaverCube to @Nanoracks yesterday, and now they will get it ready to launch on June 7th (SpaceX CRS-25)! Looking forward to taking pictures of the Northeast coast of the US and demonstrating the use of electrospray propulsion from @AccionSystems! So exciting!

FYI @mit_starlab #BeaverCube will introduce high school students to aerospace sci & tech via designing a 3U #Cubesat. It was selected in 2019 by @NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.

Media Accreditation Now Open for SpaceX’s 25th Cargo Launch to Station

Jason Costa Posted on May 5, 2022

Media accreditation is now open for SpaceX’s 25th cargo resupply mission for NASA to the International Space Station. Liftoff of the cargo Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket is targeted for 11:30 a.m. EDT Tuesday, June 7, from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft will deliver new science investigations, supplies, and equipment for the international crew, including a study of immune aging and potential for reversing those effects. It also will carry an investigation from a team of students at Stanford University that will test the process of creating biopolymer soil composite, a concrete alternative, in microgravity.

Media prelaunch and launch activities will take place at Kennedy. International media must apply by Monday, May 9, and U.S. media must apply by Thursday, May 19. Media wishing to take part in person must apply for credentials at https://media.ksc.nasa.gov.

Other studies launching include an investigation looking at the behavior of sutures and wound healing in microgravity, as well as one studying how soil microorganisms function in space. Dragon’s external cargo “trunk” will carry the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation (EMIT) instrument and a Battery Charge/Discharge Unit as part of an investigation led by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California. The EMIT instrument will be installed on the exterior of the space station to map mineral dust blown into the air on Earth to advance our understanding of dust’s effects throughout the Earth system and to human populations now and in the future.
