On March 24, 2017, American astronauts Robert Kimbrough and French astronaut Thomas Pesquet performed the spacewalk. The spacewalkers disconnected cables and electrical connections between the “PMA-3” docking adapter and the station’s “Tranquility” module to prepare for the relocation of the docking adapter to the space-facing port on the “Harmony” module, in advance of the delivery of a new docking adapter to the complex next year for commercial crew spaceships owned by Boeing and SpaceX. Kimbrough and Pesquet also lubricated a latching end effector on the Dextre robot, a two-armed handyman provided by the Canadian Space Agency, inspected a radiator valve to look for signs of a small ammonia leak, and replaced cameras outside the Japanese lab module. The EVA lasted six-and-a-half hour. It was the fifth spacewalk for Kimbrough and the second for Pesquet.... Read more »
On March 19, 2017 at 14:46 UTC the "Dragon” capsule splashed down in the Pacific Ocean at about 320 km southwest from Long Beach, California, USA. The Dragon delivered to Earth 1652 kilograms of cargo. It was the "SpaceX CRS-10” mission. CRS means Commercial Resupply Services. It was the 10th flight of Dragon to the ISS with docking.
On March 18, 2017 at 21:20 UTC the station's robotic arm removed the “Dragon” SpX-10 (CRS-10 flight) unmanned supply spacecraft from a berthing port on the Harmony module of the International Space Station. The spacecraft was moved to a stow position below the station where it stayed overnight. On March 19, controlled by ground controllers and then American astronaut Robert Kimbrough and French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, the robotic arm let go of the "Dragon” resupply vehicle at 09:11 UTC.
On March 06, 2017 at 10:45 UTC the American Lemur-2 “Trutna” and Lemur-2 “‘TrutnaHD” mini-satellites and at 18:20 UTC the American TechEdSat-5 (TES-5, Technical and Educational Satellite) satellite were launched from the International Space Station.
On February 24, 2017 at 08:30 UTC the Russian “Progress MS-05” unmanned supply spacecraft docked to the International Space Station. The spacecraft was docked to the Russian “Pirs” module. The spacecraft delivered about 2500 kilograms of cargo for the six-member ISS crew.
On February 23, 2017 at 13:12 UTC the private U.S. unmanned supply spacecraft, the "Dragon” SpX-10 (CRS-10 flight), was successfully docked to the International Space Station. The linkup operation was carried out with the help of the giant 17-meter Canadarm. The capture with Canadarm-2 was performed by French astronaut Thomas Pesquet at 10:44 UTC. The Dragon spacecraft was maneuvered into position and attached to a berthing port on the space station's Harmony module. This docking marked the 10th time a Dragon spaceship has reached the space station, counting a demonstration flight in 2012.
On February 22, 2017 at 05:58 UTC the “Progress MS-05” unmanned supply spacecraft was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome to the International Space Station. The spacecraft was orbited by the “Soyuz-U” rocket-carrier. It was the last launch of the rocket-carrier of the “Soyuz-U” version.
On February 19, 2017 at 14:39 UTC the "Falcon 9” rocket-carrier was launched from LP-39A of the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The launch was performed by the "SpaceX” private company. US private company SpaceX launched its "Dragon” (CRS-10 flight also known as SpX-10) unmanned spacecraft on a cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. CRS means Commercial Resupply Services. It is the 11th successful flight of a “Dragon” spacecraft and the 10th successful flight of a “Dragon” to the ISS.
On February 5, 2017, the Japanese HTV "Kounotori-6” unmanned supply spacecraft was deorbited. A series of deorbit maneuvers were performed at 08:42, 10:12, and 14:42 UTC. The spacecraft reentered Earth's atmosphere at 15:06 UTC. Non-burnt fragments of the spacecraft sank in the Pacific.
On January 31, 2017 at 14:25 UTC the “Progress MS-03” unmanned supply spacecraft was undocked from the International Space Station. At the same day, the spacecraft was deorbited. Non-burnt fragments of the spacecraft drowned in the remote area of the Pacific at 18:24 UTC.
