SMSR schedule update:SpaceX CRS-22 on June 3SpaceX CRS-24 on December 2SpaceX Crew-4 on April 5, 2022SpaceX Crew-5 on October 25, 2022The schedule gives very different dates for all the Boeing Crew missions than this thread. But the latter ones look more plausible.
Scheduled ISS orbit correction planned for April 2In order to form the ballistic conditions before the launch of crewed transport spaceship Soyuz MS-18 on April 2, 2021 scheduled next correction of the orbit of the International Space Station.According to preliminary data from the service ballistic-navigational support mission control center TsNIImash (part of the State Corporation Roscosmos), at 15:29 Moscow time will be issued a command to turn on the engines of cargo spacecraft Progress MS-14, which will run for 129 seconds. The momentum will be 0.22 m/s. Currently, specialists are calculating the exact parameters of the orbital altitude increase, which will be announced additionally.
JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (J-SSOD) Microsat-2 (M2): The crew installed the J-SSOD-M2 hardware to the JEM Airlock slide table. The J-SSOD-M2 launcher will be later passed through the JEM airlock and satellite deployment is planned for early next week. The JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (J-SSOD) provides a novel, safe, and small satellite launching capability to the ISS. The J-SSOD is a unique satellite launcher, handled by the Japanese Experiment Module Remote Manipulator System (JEMRMS), which provides containment and deployment mechanisms for several individual small satellites.
Statement: About the release of the first Myanmar micro-satellite from international space stationThe first Myanmar micro-satellite (Lawkanat-1) stored at international space station was released into space at 17:30 on Monday, March 22, Japan time, and was inserted into low earth orbit. This satellite was developed in Japan with the budget of the Myanmar government based on the contract agreement between Myanmar Aerospace Engineering University and Hokkaido University. With payloads, it is possible to grasp the state of vegetation and the ocean more accurately than before, and it is possible to contribute to agriculture, forestry and fisheries in Myanmar, and to monitor torrential rainfalls and typhoons by three-dimensional imaging of clouds and grasping the growth of plants.The purpose of the satellite stated in the contract is to observe the earth for the following peaceful uses.i Agricultureii. Forestryiii. Towns and Urbanizationiv. Marine & Oceanographyv. Soil, Mineral and Geomorphologyvi. Hydrology & Water Resourcesvii. Environmentviii. Disaster ManagementIn viewofthis agreement, we will do our utmost to prevent thissatellite from being used for military purposes. On the other hand, in preparation for the future full-scale operation of the satellite, and in order to suppress the degradation of the satellite performance, only the Japanese staff will carry out the test operation. In case of image acquisition, in consideration of the unexpected emergency situation, we will capture images only for countries / regions where there is no risk of military use, and would disclose information such as shooting locations on request.Currently, there are no ground facilities such as antennas and transmitters / receivers that can operate this satellite in Myanmar, and there are no human resources who can operate it. For the time being, Myanmar students currently studying space development and utilization in Hokkaido University will not be educated other than the general content described in the textbooks, and even if they return to Myanmar, it will not be possible to operate satellites or to develop a satellite independently. In addition, satellite information related to communication and operation, which is indispensable for the operation of this satellite, will be strictly managed by a limited number of Japanese staffs. In the future, if the Myanmar side requests the delivery of satellite and satellite image data, we will respond only if the political and social conditions surrounding Myanmar are stable and peaceful use is guaranteed in a way that is widely convinced by the international community, including the United Nations.The ground resolution and observation frequency of imaging by this satellite are equal to or less than those of commercial satellites that are currently available at low cost to everyone, and, therefore, are of no value in terms of military use. On the other hand, in terms of agriculture and environmental measurement, this satellite is designed to make the world's most advanced and significant contributions.We strongly hope that the day will come as soon as possible when this satellite will be used for the safety and improvement of the lives of all Myanmar people and the promotion of industry in Myanmar.Yukihiro TakahashiProject leader of Myanmar micro-satellite program in JapanProfessor at Hokkaido University
MOSCOW, March 24. / TASS /. Russian cosmonauts of the new expedition will conduct about 10 spacewalks from the International Space Station (ISS). This was announced on Wednesday at a pre-flight online conference in TASS by the commander of the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft, Oleg Novitsky.“We have an extensive extravehicular activity program - 10 spacewalks. I’m lucky to work in three,” he said.In turn, cosmonaut Pyotr Dubrov noted that he would perform up to seven spacewalks, "if everything goes according to plan."Earlier, the flight director of the Russian segment of the ISS, Vladimir Solovyov, said in an interview with the Russia-24 TV channel that the multifunctional laboratory module Nauka would be launched into orbit in the summer of 2021; seven to eight spacewalks would be required to integrate the module with the station.

ATLAS V TO LAUNCH STARLINER• Rocket: Atlas V N22• Mission: Boeing's CST-100 Starliner, Orbital Flight Test-2• Launch Date and Time: Under review• Launch Location: Space Launch Complex-41, Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, FloridaMission Information: A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket will launch Boeing's Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 Starliner spacecraft on its Orbital Flight Test-2 (OFT-2) to the International Space Station (ISS). OFT-2 is the second uncrewed flight of the Starliner that will demonstrate the spacecraft's human transportation capabilities. This test flight is the last major step before the Atlas V and Boeing's Starliner capsule take American astronauts to the International Space Station as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program.
Pavel Vlasov: ... Well, the pinnacle of the module's readiness is the re-docking of the transport ship on which the crew will arrive in the near future to the Soyuz MS-18 station, to the MLM module docking station.
NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker, along with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Soichi Noguchi, will undock Crew Dragon Resilience from the forward port of the station’s Harmony module at 6:29 a.m. and dock to the space-facing port at 7:15 a.m.
Following the latest in a series of reviews for the second crew rotation mission with astronauts on an American rocket and spacecraft from the United States, NASA and SpaceX managers and engineers continue to prepare for launch of the Crew-2 mission to the International Space Station no earlier than 6:11 a.m. EDT Thursday, April 22.
