It never ceases to amaze me when I watch a spaceplane docked to a space station doing construction work. The images have been astounding and there has been a lot of success. I hope the trip back is smooth and congrats to all involved in a great mission :) Soon there will be six :)
Cheers

When there is 6, what will be their escape mechanism? 2 Soyuz docked at all times?

NASA cancelled the X-38 years ago.
