JEM Airlock (JEMAL): Today the crew reconfigured the JEM ORU Transfer Interface (JOTI) in support of upcoming Materials ISS Experiment – Flight Facility (MISSE-FF) payload operations. MISSE-FF will be a permanent external platform on the ISS that is modular and robotically serviceable. Remotely controllable sample carriers will provide sample protection and on-demand picture data previously unavailable on prior experiments. Sample plates containing a variety of surface materials will be exposed to the space environment outside the ISS for varying durations to inform satellite designers on how different materials degrade over time. MISSE-FF is currently manifested on SpaceX-14.

NASA’s upcoming CRS-14 ISS resupply mission will re-fly SpaceX Falcon 9 booster flown on CRS-12. Dragon previously flew CRS-8.
The upcoming SpaceX resupply mission will launch 138 different material samples to @Space_Station. These samples will be part of the first mission to use a new ISS National Lab-sponsored external testing platform.https://www.nasa.gov/feature/predicting-the-lifespan-of-materials-in-space
The #CRS14 launch is all about reusability. @SpaceX first stage flew August 14, 2017 on #CRS12 and the Dragon capsule April 8 to May 11, 2016, on #CRS8. The @ASIM_Payload ISS adapter (FRAM) flew on the EuTEF mission October 2007 to October 2009.
We're happy to say that the Remove Debris spacecraft is now on board SpaceX's dragon awaiting launch NET 2nd April. Stay tuned... https://www.surrey.ac.uk/surrey-space-centre/missions/removedebris …

No change to weather. Everything still the same. 80% "go" prediction not including Upper Level Winds.
The @SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with the #Dragon spacecraft is preparing to launch from Space Launch Complex 40 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in FL. Our #NASASocial participants are ready for 🚀 scheduled at 4:30pm today. Watch live at: NASA.gov/live
Still looking good for SpaceX’s Falcon 9 & Dragon launch to the ISS today at 4:30pm est! Preflown booster with some incredible scars and look - no number on the booster and it’s expendable. #spacex #falcon9
IDA-3 will launch on CRS-18.
Merlin Engines and Dark Flames as promised. From today’s SpaceX launch to the International Space Station for Commercial ReSupply 14 @SpaceX #crs14 #falcon9
The @spacex #CRS14 #Dragon with #ESA @esaspaceflight #ASIM @ASIM_Payload is currently ~20 minutes ahead of the #ISS and closing in on a Western European pass
Is there any conformation, that Overview 1A is inside Dragon. I haven´t find anything on NanoRacks or SpaceVR.
