SAGE Instrument and Nadir Viewing Platform Removed from SpaceX Dragon Trunk

Overnight, Thursday, March 2 through Friday, March 3, the SAGE III Instrument Payload (IP) was successfully removed from the SpaceX Dragon trunk by the International Space Station robotics team based at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.


The IP was installed on the Enhanced ORU Temporary Platform or EOTP which is supplying survival power until the transfer to the instrument’s final home on Express Logistics Carrier #4.


The Nadir Viewing Platform was removed from the trunk Friday morning.
