Filled with almost 2,700 pounds of valuable scientific experiments and other cargo, a SpaceX Dragon resupply spacecraft is set to leave the International Space Station Tuesday, Aug. 27. NASA Television and the agency’s website will broadcast its departure live beginning at 10:15 a.m. EDT.Robotic flight controllers at mission control in Houston will issue remote commands at 10:42 a.m. to release Dragon from the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module using the station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm. Expedition 60 Flight Engineer Christina Koch of NASA will back up the ground controllers and monitor Dragon’s systems as it departs the orbital laboratory.Dragon will fire its thrusters to move a safe distance from the station, then execute a deorbit burn around 3:22 p.m. as it heads for a parachute-assisted splashdown around 4:21 p.m. in the Pacific Ocean, some 300 miles southwest of Long Beach, California. The deorbit burn and splashdown will not air on NASA TV.
Here we have the plan for the next Russian crews.http://www.gctc.ru/main.php?id=155
MOSCOW, Aug 24 - RIA News. The flight control center informed the ISS crew about the need to reload the Soyuz MS-13 spacecraft to make room for the Soyuz MS-14 to dock with the Fedor robot on board.Now Soyuz MS-13 is docked to the Zvezda service module node. According to Vladimir Solovyev, flight director of the Russian segment, Soyuz MS-14 will be easier to dock to this module because of "great control capabilities."In turn, the crew of the Soyuz MS-13, Russian Alexander Skvortsov, Italian Luca Parmitano and American Andrew Morgan, will shuttle the ship to the Search module on Monday night....A new attempt to dock the Soyuz MS-14 to the ISS is scheduled for Tuesday night. After this operation, the ISS crew will replace the faulty course module.
"On the night of Sunday to Monday, we are at Soyuz, which with Fedor, will carry out some kind of correction in the interests of docking on the morning of Tuesday, August 27. This [repeated attempt to dock Soyuz MS-14 with the ISS] will be in the area eight to nine in the morning Moscow time, "said Soloviev.He also noted that in the event of a successful second attempt to dock the Soyuz MS-14 with the ISS, specialists expect to return this ship to Earth on September 7 this year, as originally planned. “I would like to leave the date of undocking the same - on the night of September 6-7,” he said, answering a question from one of the Russian cosmonauts whether the date of undocking of Soyuz MS-14 from the ISS will remain the same.Redocking of the Soyuz MS-13The State Commission decided to re-pilot the Soyuz MS-13 manned spacecraft into the ISS Small Search Module MIM-2 Search, Soloviev said.“We made a decision and approved it at the state commission: tomorrow we propose to devote your preparation for the re-installation and test, so that the Soyuz MS-13 is finally ready for the re-installation. We plan to carry out your re-installation on Monday, August 26, somewhere in seven to eight in the morning, Moscow time. Tomorrow I would like you to practice the on-board simulator for re-training, remember the on-board documentation, "Soloviev said.

Regarding the Soyuz spacecraft dockingAugust 25, 2019, 06:00 GMTOn August 22, 2019 the Soyuz MS-14 unpiloted ship test launch took place according to the International Space Station flight program. On August, 24 due to the technical issues the automatic docking of the ship to the ISS was cancelled. To organize its docking, on August, 26 the Soyuz MS-13 piloted spacecraft will be redocked from the Zvezda service module to the Poisk Mini-Research Module 2 of the Russian segment of the ISS. The estimated time of the Soyuz MS-13 detachment from the Zvezda module is at 03:34 UTC, the docking to the Poisk module is at 03:59 UTC. The whole operation will last for about 25 minutes. The docking will be performed manually by the ship’s commander Alexander Skvortsov with onboard engineers Luca Parmitano and Andrew Morgan taking part. On August, 25 the ISS crew is training to redock the spacecraft and carrying out its depreservation. The redocking will be performed to free up the Zvezda service module docking unit, which will be used to dock the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft on August 27, 2019 at 03:12 UTC.
We received the official word from Scott Higginbotham at Kennedy Space Center,” Oak Ridge Schools said in a press release. “His letter stated, ‘RamSat is currently manifested to fly on the ELaNa-31 mission aboard the NG-14 Commercial Resupply Services mission to the ISS. Launch is currently scheduled for October of 2020.

The SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft released from the International Space Station at 10:59 a.m. EDT after flight controllers in Houston delivered remote commands to the station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm. Expedition 60 Flight Engineer Flight Engineer Christina Koch of NASA monitored Dragon’s systems as it departed the microgravity laboratory.Next up, Dragon will fire its thrusters to move a safe distance from the station and execute a deorbit burn around 3:22 p.m. to leave orbit. Splashdown down is targeted for 4:21 p.m. EDT (1:21 p.m. PDT).
Egypt and Rwanda are set to launch cube satellites, NARSSCube-1 and RwaSat-1 respectively, to the International Space Station, onboard the Japanese Kounotori 8 (HTV-8) unmanned cargo resupply mission to ISS.
The release of the satellite is planned to be scheduled for one or two months later, either in October or November, or to be defined later on”.
“Undocking of the Soyuz MS-14 from the Zvezda module is planned for September 6 at 21.14 Moscow time, the deorbit burn at 23.37 Moscow time, and the landing of the Soyuz MS-14 descent vehicle in Kazakhstan on September 7 at 00.34 Moscow time, "said the source.
It is planned that Skripochka and Meir, after 187 days aboard the ISS, will return to Earth on March 30, 2020, together with the American Andrew Morgan.
