Dragon CRS-12

On 17th September, the Dragon CRS-12 was disengaged from the Harmony module by Paolo Nespoli and Randolph Bresnik using the ISS’s Canadarm2 robotic arm. It splashed down in the Pacific on the same day.

Defective camera on the Canadarm2

On 20th October, Randy Bresnik und Joseph Acaba carried out a third EVA task. They changed a defective camera on the Canadarm2, changed a fuse on the ISS’s “robotic handyman” Dextre, installed an HD camera on the EHDCA and prepared spare parts for potential future use.

Recovery

During this trip, we had to chance to find some unbelievable fairing materials

18th September

After the disappointment of August’s trip, we travelled anew to Kazakhstan to recover parts from the Soyuz MS-06. This time, we were present for the entire unloading process and were able to inspect which parts would be suitable for production. What’s more, we put our experience from previous watch face production to good use and made significant improvements to the material preparation process. Despite these effective preparations, it was 27th October before the heavy goods vehicle carrying material from both rockets was ready to depart. We are hopeful that the material will last for another year of production.
