Natürlich wird es auch diverse Anomalien beim Flug gegeben haben, die nicht öffentlich bekannt geworden sind.
The question of the combined COTS 2/3 came up (once more) during today's STS-135 post MMT briefing, and was answered by Mike Suffredini (ISS Program Manager). This is my transcript: Robert Pearlman: "Where does the decision lie right now in terms of allowing SpaceX to combine their 2nd and 3rd flights to fly directly to the space station?" Mike Suffredini: "We haven't made a final decision but we're pretty close. As far as technically can we combine the flights and feel comfortable, that you can do the demonstration steps planned for both of the missions in one mission, and get the delta testing done on the ground to make up for what you may not have gotten on the first demo flight? - we're there, technically we're good. The other part that we had to look at was the assessment of [...] the last flight of the Falcon 9 that we have worked with SpaceX, and we didn't see anything of large concern there. So we're having some final discussions about the actual flight itself that would occur ... we'll call it the combined flight ... but the next flight - and there's some secondary payloads on there, or a secondary payload on there that they'd like to fly, so that's a factor so we're having those discussions now. But we'll conclude that here in the next few weeks. But the planning is all assuming that we're flying the next flight to ISS - that's what we'll be doing, so we're not losing any time with regard to being prepared for that flight. And its probably in ... later in November launch date that we'll go for it - that hasn't been finalised yet."
