    So July 18th launch of CRS-9/Dragon with IDA-2. Aug 22 launch of Cygnus.

    Dragon usually stays on station about 20-30 days. Wonder if it will overlap with Cygnus? That would be a nice picture for a Soyuz relocation to take a photo of, station with both CBM ports full. Never happened yet. Hopefully will come a common site!

    Oh, the poor Soyuz never gets to be part of the picture.
