NG-12 Cygnus unberthing (TBD)

After about two months attached to the International Space Station, the NG-12 Cygnus is slated to be unberthed and released from the outpost to perform a secondary free-flight mission. Once that mission is completed, it will be commanded to perform a de-orbit burn to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere over the southern Pacific Ocean for disposal.

Crew Dragon Demo-2 launch (TBD)

SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-2 is expected to be the second flight test of the company’s first human-rated spacecraft. Unlike Demo-1 in March 2019, Demo-2 will have two astronauts aboard: NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken. This flight’s launch date is dependent on a number of factors ranging from the outcome and results of the Demo-1 mission, an in-flight abort test and other items needed before the vehicle is dubbed ready for humans.
