It can be called as an end of an era for the International Space Station as one of its longer chapter is ending. 19-years after sending the first 2 racks of 11 ExPRESS, NASA has sent its last 2 racks to the orbiting facility. A Japanese cargo ship has carried the last two racks that should be functioning by fall 2020. The racks will remain useful for a while, however, this effectively marks the end of NASA’s ISS work.
