SpaceX CRS-19, also known as SpX-19, is a Commercial Resupply Service mission to the International Space Station currently manifested to be launched on May 2019. The mission was contracted by NASA and is flown by SpaceX.
Launch schedule history
On February 2016, it was announced that NASA had awarded a contract extension to SpaceX for five CRS additional missions (CRS-16 to CRS-20). As of June 2016[update], a NASA Inspector General report had this mission manifested for December 2018. As of May 2018 this had been pushed back to October 2019.
NASA has contracted for the CRS-19 mission from SpaceX and therefore determines the primary payload, date/time of launch, and orbital parameters for the Dragon space capsule. According to a 2018 press release, the external payload manifested for this flight is the NanoRacks Airlock Module.
