They seem to be cutting it pretty close for a June 3 launch.

B1067 might be for Inspiration4 instead:


Jared Isaacman indicates that B1067.2 is currently the favorite to launch Inspiration4 (see tweet thread)

I was thinking the same thing, but if it arrives on Monday it is still 17 days to launch. Workflow is a little shorter from crewed missions, but still kind of tight with post transport unpacking and inspections.

NASA, SpaceX Announce Target Launch Time for Next Resupply Services Mission

NASA and SpaceX are targeting 1:29 p.m. EDT on Thursday, June 3, for the company’s 22nd commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, topped by the uncrewed Cargo Dragon spacecraft, is scheduled to lift off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

This will be the second SpaceX mission to deliver science investigations, supplies, and equipment for NASA under the agency’s second Commercial Resupply Services contract. To date, SpaceX has completed 21 cargo resupply missions to and from the space station, providing more than 100,000 pounds of supplies and approximately 80,000 pounds of return mass.

Hmm, whoever wrote that press release seems to have forgotten about CRS-7,
which did not make it to the ISS.
So only 20 cargo dragons have made it to the ISS and returned from the ISS.

You forgot Dragon C2, which launched to and returned from the station. The last sentence of their last paragraph doesn't speak about commercial resupply services mission but only cargo resupply missions to and from the space station. So it gives 21/22.

It wasn't that I forgot about C2, it was that I read the statement as being about CRS flights.
But you are correct that I didn't include C2, just for a different reason than you supposed.

On the other hand, CRS-7 was a mission to and from the Space station. And CRS-7 is completed in that it is not ongoing. It simply wasn't completed successfully. CRS-7 thus, arguably still meets the parameters of the statement.

What is the deployed mass of this iROSA array?
Chris  Whoever loves correction loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.

To the maximum extent practicable, the Federal Government shall plan missions to accommodate the space transportation services capabilities of United States commercial providers. US law http://goo.gl/YZYNt0

Annoyingly, we have no official word yet beyond speculating that it'll be about double ROSA, which would be ~700 kg.
