Mission Details
Quote
SpaceX is targeting Thursday, July 14 for Falcon 9’s launch of its 25th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-25) mission to the International Space Station. Liftoff is targeted for 8:44 p.m. ET, or 00:44 UTC on July 15, from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A backup launch opportunity is available on Friday, July 15 at 8:18 p.m. ET, or 00:18 UTC on July 16.

This is the fifth flight of the first stage booster (B1067.5) supporting this mission, which previously supported CRS-22, Crew-3, Turksat 5B, and Crew-4. Following stage separation, Falcon 9 will land on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Dragon (C208.3) supporting this mission previously supported CRS-21 and CRS-23. Approximately twelve minutes after liftoff, Dragon will separate from Falcon 9’s second stage and dock to the space station on Saturday, July 16 at 11:20 a.m. ET, 15:20 UTC.

A live webcast of this mission will begin about 20 minutes prior to liftoff.

Apparently, No Static Fire.

Will there be a Static Fire before launch?

I expect not.

Hard to say. They skipped SF on CRS-24 and CRS-22, but those flew new boosters. CRS-23 and CRS-21 flew reused boosters and they did SF those prior to launch.

[email protected]’s Falcon 9 rocket – with the Dragon spacecraft atop – was rolled out to the launch pad this morning [July 13] in preparation for the 25th commercial resupply services mission.

No equivalent of https://www.nasa.gov/content/spacex-crs-24-mission-overview  yet, right?
For the moment it has not been created, nor have the contents been uploaded, if it becomes available this would be the link

I see this Dragon will be docking to IDA-2. Canadarm can't reach into the trunk to retrieve EMIT in that case.

Crew-4 Dragon was supposed to relocate in early July but it didn't happen for some reason. So what's the plan? Are they gonna relocate both Dragons at the same time? It would also be the first ever Cargo Dragon redocking, right?

This will be the second mission delivering iROSA panels.
Looks like there is no IROSA this time, I did not find mentioning it in the cargo manifest:

No, now they would be for the CRS-26 mission, a few weeks ago they arrived at Boeing's facilities for final testing.

iROSA has been deferred to a later launch due to the EVA suit issues. Instead this launch carries the  Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation (EMIT) instrument and a Battery Charge/Discharge Unit in the trunk.
