SpaceX Rocket Launch From Cape Canaveral, Florida On December 4, 2019

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket will take NASA's 'Robot Hotel' to the ISS

A brand new Falcon 9 rocket is ready to launch a twice-used Dragon cargo ship to the International Space Station.

Shortly before the launch was scheduled to take place, SpaceX was forced to scrub the mission due to high upper-level winds and potentially hazardous conditions at sea, where SpaceX's drone ship was to be positioned.

According to the latest forecast from the U.S. Air Force 45th Weather Squadron, there is a 90% chance of favorable weather for the launch. Launches to the space station have instantaneous launch windows to catch the station in orbit. "We won't know until tomorrow".

RiTS even mounts to the robotic platform that moves Dextre up and down the external rails on station and ensures a RELL tool will always be accessible.

The robot hotel is more formally known as the "Robotic Tool Stowage" unit, or the RiTS for short, because NASA loves nothing quite so much as it loves acronyms. "The Japanese airlock for equipment is very popular, very busy". RELL will detect leaks and gases like ammonia. Being able to do this 12 hours at a time from the exterior of the ISS will be extremely useful to the team of astronauts.

RiTS was developed by the Satellite Servicing Projects Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, in partnership with NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.
