ISS Gets Ready for New Commercial Crew Port

It looks like Boeing and Space X are getting their own docking port on the ISS. It's amazing how far Space X has come in just the last few years. It seems like just yesterday they were blowing up every other time they tried to land their rockets, now they have a parking space on the International Space Station. big grin

Space station and Commercial Crew managers wrapped up a spacewalk briefing Monday afternoon discussing the installation of a new International Docking Adapter at the end of the week. Spacewalkers Jeff Williams and Kate Rubins will begin the installation work Friday at 8:05 a.m. EDT to enable future crew vehicles from Boeing and SpaceX to dock in the future.
