So based on the current scheduled missions going to the #ISS and need an IDA docking adapter. The earliest time there will be a docking adapter availble for the #OFT2 mission will be the 2nd half of November 2021.
So after the departure of the #Crew2 mission currently scheduled for the 8th of November, however the #Crew3 has to redock their capsule from #IDA2 to #IDA3 first. However on the 5th of December SpaceX Cargo Dragon #CRS24 needs that docking port again.
I partly blame @SpaceX here that they designed the new Cargo Dragon capsule like the Crew Dragon with IDA docking adapter instead of berthing hatch like they did with Dragon V1. The situation would be much better/flexible if only crewed vehicle would use the IDA adapters.
