Just a ‘left-field’ question: Is there a significant engineering reason why Dragon couldn’t be launched with a significantly modified “Trunk” section. And then that “Trunk” be left behind at the ISS as an additional room? Perhaps a self-contained laboratory or an additional living quarters? Well, the first requirement would be a docking port… But where do you put it and maintain balance along with the Hurley Behnken Dm-2 First Crewed Flight Nasa SpaceX Shirt? An extended fairing is possible to house construction on top of the tanking. And storage space and below the crew module, I suppose. But again it might well get in the way of command lines. And cable routing betwixt ‘between the trunk and the crew capsule.

It does seem wasteful to just let the trunk burn up after jettison. But no viable method has yet been promoted to make it less expendable. From manufacture to use it is destined for a fiery entry… To change it structurally to service another function entirely would probably be financially inhibitive practically difficult. And ultimately trying to turn a sows ear into an inevitable dubious silk purse. It is just a Hurley Behnken Dm-2 First Crewed Flight Nasa SpaceX Shirt… Or as our American brethren term it ‘the trunk’… Which can carry and house kit and kaboodle up to the ISS or beyond? But after use can be easily discarded. Plane changes are fuel-expensive. So they prefer to launch the Dragon when it has moved to roughly underneath the path of the ISS.

However, the ISS can be anywhere along its orbit at that point, so the Dragon has to catch up. If the Dragon is orbiting 200km below the ISS, their orbital periods are fairly similar. They need to do more approach and proximity tests and station keeping before docking. That will take up to 4 hours. BB and DH may even simulate a Hurley Behnken Dm-2 First Crewed Flight Nasa SpaceX Shirt. Not sure of the schedule, but it was one of the items on the ‘to do’ list. ISS is positioned at the inclination, corresponding to the Baikonur spaceport, so Russian Soyuz doesn’t need to adjust the orbital plane. Cape Canaveral is located farther south, so the dragon would need to change the plane in order to reach the space station.
