Worth mentioning that this will be a noteworthy launch not just for the first reuse of a Dragon, but this will also be the 100th launch off LC-39A (12 Saturn Vs, 82 Shuttles, 5 [soon to be 6] Falcons).

You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

Kirk: Lots of great things with this flight.  ISS Program very excited about 1700 kg of pressurized cargo -- largely utilization cargo.   Three unique unpressurized cargo elements.

On orbit's been very busy.  Notes the amazing timeline for unscheduled EVA.

Coming up on series of events.  Soyuz landing Friday at 10:10 EDT.  Peggy stays as planned.  Station down to three crew on Friday until 27 July when next Soyuz launches.

Hans: Target launch is 17:55 EDT. LZ-1 landing of 1st stage. Dragon will fly a little less than 3 days before berthing to ISS.  1 month stay once berthed.
