Simonetta di Pippo mentioned that the UN mission should happen in 2021 or 2022 depending on when the first flight of DC happens. It would last between 2 to 3 weeks but would not go to the ISS. There would be about 25 to 30 micro-gravity experiments plus some experiments outside of DC. Each experiment must have at least one sustainable development goal. It's open to developed countries but there is a focus on developing countries. Working with SNC on the announcement of opportunities.  It's a triangular cooperation between one or more developed country, developing or emerging countries and the UN Office for space affairs.

See the article linked below:

Article focused on Erin Ozmen.  I didn't notice anything new about Dream Chaser.  That said, I found it to be an interesting read.

Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has won NASA approval to begin full-scale production of its Dream Chaser cargo spacecraft scheduled to make its first flight in about two years.

The company announced Dec. 18 that it completed a milestone in its Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) 2 contract called Integrated Review 4. With that milestone, the company is cleared to move ahead into assembly of the Dream Chaser vehicle that will deliver cargo to the station.

If ZBLAN can't pay for commercial stations, we'll just have to keep looking until we find other products that can combine to support humans earning a living in space.

Our cargo module design is huge!  Itís being used for both our Dream Chaser spacecraft and our lunar Gateway design.  Here is @JimBridenstine taking a look at its large cargo capacity.
