Power is arriving at the @ASIM_Payload and heaters are warming up. The thermal countdown clock is stopped. #SpaceStormHunter's temperature is now being actively controlled again.

From today morning
The SSRMS is installing this box on the truss (without Dextre)
you mean with Dextre because SSRMS cant perform such operations like that.

Of course you are right.

Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) Operations:  Yesterday, the Robotics Ground Controllers stowed the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) on Mobile Base System (MBS) Power Data Grapple Fixture 2 (PDGF2). Next they walked the SSRMS off Node 2 onto MBS PDGF3 and unstowed the SPDM. Then, after having rotated the SPDM Enhanced Orbital Replaceable Unit (ORU) Temporary Platform (EOTP), they maneuvered SPDM Arm 2 to unstow Robot Micro Conical Tool 2 (RMCT2) from SPDM Tool Holder Assembly 2 (THA2). Earlier today, ground controllers retrieved the Material on ISS Experiment – Flight Facility (MISSE-FF) Transfer Tray (MTT) from the JEM Airlock.  The Mobile Transporter (MT) was then moved from worksite 6 (port side) to worksite 2 (stbd side).

Mobile Servicing System (MSS) Operations: Last night, robotics controllers used the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) and Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) to transfer one MISSE Sample Container (MSC) from the MTT to the MISSE Flight Facility (FF).  Tonight, controllers will transfer the final three MSCs.

MEDIA ADVISORY M18-068

US Cargo Spaceship Set for Departure from International Space Station

After delivering more than 5,800 pounds of science investigations and cargo for NASA, a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft is set to depart the International Space Station on Wednesday, May 2. NASA Television and the agency’s website will provide live coverage of Dragon's departure beginning at 10 a.m. EDT.

Flight controllers on Earth will use the Canadarm2 robotic arm to detach the Dragon capsule, which arrived April 4, from the Earth-facing side of the station's Harmony module. After maneuvering Dragon into place, they will give the command to release the spacecraft as Expedition 55 Flight Engineer Scott Tingle of NASA monitors its departure at 10:22 a.m.

Dragon’s thrusters will be fired to move the spacecraft a safe distance from the station before SpaceX flight controllers in Hawthorne, California, command its deorbit burn. The capsule will splash down about 4:02 p.m. in the Pacific Ocean, where recovery forces will retrieve the capsule and more than 4,000 pounds of cargo, including science samples from human and animal research, biology and biotechnology studies, physical science investigations and education activities. The deorbit burn and splashdown will not be broadcast on NASA TV.

NASA and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), the nonprofit organization that manages research conducted aboard the station’s U.S. National Laboratory, will receive time-sensitive samples and begin working with researchers to process and distribute them within 48 hours of splashdown. In the event of adverse weather conditions in the splashdown zone in the Pacific, the departure and splashdown will occur on the backup date of May 5.

Dragon is the only space station resupply spacecraft able to return to Earth intact. SpaceX launched its 14th NASA-contracted commercial resupply mission to the station April 2 on a previously flown Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
