On January 7, 2020 at 08:41 UTC the station's robotic arm removed the Dragon capsule from its berthing port on the station’s Harmony module. Using a command issued from the mission control center, the robot arm released the Dragon CRS-19 spacecraft at 10:05 UTC. It was the 19th flight of Dragon to the ISS with docking, including a demonstration flight in 2012.
On December 22, 2019 at 12:58 UTC the American CST-100 “Starliner” spacecraft (Boe-OFT mission) landed at White Sands Space Harbor located approximately 30 miles (50 kilometers) west of Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA.
On December 20, 2019 at 11:36 UTC the Boeing CST-100 Starliner spacecraft (Boe-OFT mission) was launched from SLC-41 of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA. The launch was performed by United Launch Alliance supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. The space vehicle was orbited by the "Atlas-5” rocket-carrier. CST means Crew Space Transportation. Boe-OFT means Boeing Orbital Flight Test. It was the first orbital mission of the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft, conducted by Boeing as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program. This unpiloted demonstration mission was planned to be an 8-day test flight of the spacecraft, involving the docking to the International Space Station. But the spacecraft flew into the wrong orbit soon after lifting off and burnt too much fuel. The docking with the ISS became impossible.
On December 9, 2019 at 10:35 UTC the Russian “Progress MS-13” 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 December 8, 2019 at 12:47 UTC, the private U.S. unmanned supply spacecraft, the "Dragon” SpX-19 (CRS-19 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 Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano at 10:05 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 19th time a Dragon spaceship has reached the space station, counting a demonstration flight in 2012. The Dragon spacecraft delivered 2617 kilograms of supplies, equipment and research investigations for the station’s crew.
On December 6, 2019 the US "Cygnus” CRS-11 (NG-11 “S.S. Roger Chaffee”) unmanned supply spacecraft was deorbited. Non-burnt fragments of the spacecraft drowned in the remote area of the Pacific at 16:55 UTC.
On December 5, 2019 at 17:29 UTC the "Falcon 9” rocket-carrier was launched from SLC-40 of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, USA. The launch was performed by the "SpaceX” private company supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. US private company SpaceX launched its "Dragon” (CRS-19 flight also known as SpX-19) unmanned spacecraft on a cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. CRS means Commercial Resupply Services. It is the 20th successful flight of a “Dragon” spacecraft and the 19th successful flight of a “Dragon” to the ISS.
On December 2, 2019, American astronaut Andrew Morgan and Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano performed the 3rd spacewalk to continue the repairing of the AMS-02 cosmic ray detector. The EVA (extravehicular activity) lasted 5 hours and 56 minutes. This was the 5th spacewalk for Luca Parmitano and the 6th for Andrew Morgan.
