SpaceX CRS-26, also known as SpX-26, is a Commercial Resupply Service mission to the International Space Station (ISS) planned to launch in September 2022.[1][2] The mission is contracted by NASA and will be flown by SpaceX using a Cargo Dragon. This will be the sixth flight for SpaceX under NASA's CRS Phase 2 contract awarded in January 2016.

Cargo Dragon

SpaceX plans to reuse the Cargo Dragons up to five times. The Cargo Dragon will launch without SuperDraco abort engines, without seats, cockpit controls and the life support system required to sustain astronauts in space.[3][4] This newer design provides several benefits, including a faster process to recover, refurbish and re-fly versus the earlier Dragon CRS design used for ISS cargo missions.[5]

The new Cargo Dragon capsules under the NASA CRS Phase 2 contract will splash down under parachutes in the Atlantic Ocean, east of Florida, rather than the previous recovery zone in the Pacific Ocean west of Baja California.[3][5]

Payload

NASA contracted for the CRS-26 mission from SpaceX and therefore determines the primary payload, date of launch, and orbital parameters for the Cargo Dragon.[6]

  • Science investigations: 0 kg (0 lb)
  • Vehicle hardware: 0 kg (0 lb)
  • Crew supplies: 0 kg (0 lb)
  • Spacewalk equipment: 0 kg (0 lb)
  • Computer resources: 0 kg (0 lb)
  • External payloads: 0 kg (0 lb)


ISS Roll Out Solar Arrays (iROSA)

Third pair of new solar arrays using XTJ Prime space solar cells. They will be delivered to the station in the unpressurized trunk of the SpaceX Cargo Dragon spacecraft.[7]

The installation of these new solar arrays will require two spacewalks: one to prepare the worksite with a modification kit and another to install the new panel.[8]

Research

The new experiments arriving at the orbiting laboratory will inspire future scientists and explorers, and provide valuable insight for researchers.
