Once this Dragon docks to the @space_station, there will be two Dragons docked simultaneously. Between crew and cargo missions, there will be at least one Dragon spacecraft attached to the @space_station for the entirety of 2021

We're excited to share that the #BishopAirlock was successfully installed in the @SpaceX #Dragon trunk this week. It's been a wild few years building a new piece of @Space_Station infrastructure, and all we can say is thank you to our team & all of our partners along the way!

Готов первый коммерческий шлюз МКС - видео его работы
VL
В конце этого года его отправят к Международной космической станции, где он будет установлен на одном из доступных портов. Предлагаем посмотреть видео того, как новый шлюз будут использовать.

Доставит воздушный шлюз на МКС ракета SpaceX Falcon 9. Это первый в своем роде коммерческий воздушный шлюз, предназначенный для доставки полезных нагрузок и других материалов с борта герметичной космической станции во внешний вакуум.

Его разработкой и строительством занималась компания Nanoracks. До сих пор она не строила ничего столь масштабного, специализируясь на о оборудовании для работы в космосе. Компания также разработала собственные средства развертывания спутников, которые используются для вывода крошечных космических кораблей на орбиту.
То есть данный коммерческий воздушный шлюз, получивший название Bishop, стал самым амбициозным проектом Nanoracks.
Металлическая конструкция, имеющая форму колпака, присоединяется к шлюзу МКС, создавая небольшой округлый выступ на внешней стороне орбитальной станции. Зажимы и механизмы по краям порта обеспечивают герметизацию. Затем космонавты смогут передавать через шлюз различные вещи.
Когда предмет оказывается внутри «Бишопа», космонавты закрывают люк порта и откачивают воздух из шлюза. Затем роботизированная рука на внешней стороне космической станции производит захват «Бишопа», отсоединяет его от порта и протягивает, например, космонавтам, находящимся снаружи станции, после чего шлюз устанавливается на прежнее место. Это только один из способов использования нового шлюза.

Шлюз Епископа - это первое постоянное коммерческое дополнение к инфраструктуре Международной космической станции. Шлюз Епископа предлагает в 5 раз больший объем, чем сейчас, который можно перемещать на космическую станцию ​​и из нее. Построенный и управляемый компанией Nanoracks, Бишоп позволит в полной мере коммерческое использование Международной космической станции.

The first commercially funded airlock for the International Space Station is ready for its journey to space. On Saturday, Oct. 10, teams moved the Nanoracks Bishop Airlock to SpaceX's processing facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Two days later, it was packed in the Dragon spacecraft's trunk for its ride to the orbiting laboratory.

The airlock will provide payload hosting, robotics testing, and satellite deployment, and also will serve as an outside toolbox for crew members conducting spacewalks.

The Bishop Airlock is launching on SpaceX's 21st commercial resupply services (CRS-21) mission to the space station. This will be the first flight of SpaceX's upgraded cargo version of Dragon, which can carry more science payloads to and from the space station.

The pressurized capsule will carry a variety of research including studies on the effects of microgravity on cardiovascular cells, how space conditions affect the interaction between microbes and minerals, and a technology demonstration of a blood analysis tool in space. CRS-21 is scheduled to launch aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy's Launch Complex 39A. Teams are targeting late November or early December for liftoff.

MEDIA ADVISORY M20-116

NASA Invites Media to Next SpaceX Space Station Cargo Launch


A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifts off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 11:50 p.m. EST on March 6, 2020, carrying the uncrewed cargo Dragon spacecraft on its journey to the International Space Station for NASA and SpaceX's 20th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-20) mission.

Media accreditation is open for the launch of the next SpaceX delivery of NASA science investigations, supplies, and equipment to the International Space Station.

This mission will be the first cargo resupply mission on the company's upgraded version of its Dragon spacecraft and is targeted to launch on a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida no earlier than December.

Media prelaunch and launch activities will take place at Kennedy. ...

The Nanoracks Bishop Airlock is packed in the Dragon spacecraft's trunk for its ride to the orbiting laboratory. The first commercially funded space station airlock - an airtight segment used for transfer of payloads between the inside and outside of the station - will provide payload hosting, robotics testing, and satellite deployment while also serving as an outside toolbox for astronauts conducting spacewalks.

Among the investigations riding inside the Dragon's pressurized capsule will be a variety of research, including studies on the effects of microgravity on cardiovascular cells and how space conditions affect the interaction between microbes and minerals, as well as a technology demonstration of a blood analysis tool in space.

Each resupply mission to the station delivers scientific investigations in the areas of biology and biotechnology, physical sciences, and Earth and space science. Advances in these areas will help to keep astronauts healthy during long-duration space travel and demonstrate technologies for future human and robotic exploration beyond low-Earth orbit to the Moon and Mars. Space station research through the ISS National Lab also provides opportunities for other U.S. government agencies, private industry, and academic and research institutions to conduct microgravity research that leads to new technologies, medical treatments, and products that improve life on Earth.

This is the 21st SpaceX mission to deliver science investigations, supplies, and equipment for NASA and the first under the agency's second Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-2) contract. Cargo resupply from U.S. companies ensures a national capability to deliver critical science research to the space station, significantly increasing NASA's ability to conduct new investigations at the only laboratory in space. With this first flight under the CRS-2 contract, SpaceX and NASA will build upon the success of the missions flown under the first commercial resupply contract. SpaceX has completed 20 Dragon missions to and from the space station, providing more than 95,000 pounds of supplies and 75,000 pounds of return mass.

The International Space Station is a convergence of science, technology, and human innovation that demonstrates new technologies and enables research not possible on Earth. The space station has been occupied continuously since November 2000. In that time, 241 people and a variety of international and commercial spacecraft have visited the orbiting laboratory. The space station remains the springboard to NASA's next great leap in exploration, including future missions to the Moon and eventually to Mars.

The trajectory is temporarily deviated. Skybot not to blame.
