Materials International Space Station Experiment-X (MISSE-X) is a   
proposed International Space Station (ISS) external platform for space environmental studies designed to advance the technology readiness of materials and devices critical for future space exploration. The MISSE-X platform will expand ISS utilization by providing experimenters with unprecedented low-cost space access and return on investment (ROI). As a follow-on to the highly successful MISSE series of ISS experiments, MISSE-X will provide advances over the original MISSE configurations including incorporation of plug-and-play experiments that will minimize return mass requirements in the post-Shuttle era, improved active sensing and monitoring of the ISS external environment for better characterization of environmental effects, and expansion of the MISSE-X user community through incorporation of new, customer-desired capabilities. MISSE-X will also foster interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in primary and secondary schools through student collaboration and participation.

I haven't been able to access the NTRS servers for months now. Is anyone else having this trouble?

Yep,

but I'm able to open a document sporadically and managed to open it on the third attempt.
JIMO would have been the first proper spaceship.

Works for me too (from the UK) - However, I did have problems this morning when all NTRS links I tried gave a 'forbidden access' error page.  I normally never have any problems.

New iteration of FTSCE seems to be in as well, cool.
