    Before Crew-2's Endeavour launches, Crew-1's Resilience will be moved from the Harmony module's Forward port to the Zenith port (the port away from Earth). Endeavour will then dock at Harmony Forward, and a few days later Resilience returns home to make room at Zenith for Cargo Dragon CRS-22 in June.

    According to the wiki article, Resilience flies again on September 15 for the Inspiration 4 charity mission for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, this time with a large observation cupola attached. The views should be great.
