Onboard the International Space Station (ISS) 4K video (3840x2160), from a RED Epic Dragon camera speeded up 150x, shows the Leonardo Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) being relocated from the nadir port of the Unity module to the forward-facing port of the Tranquility (Node 3) module. This was done to allow Unity's nadir port to act as a docking port for future US "Commercial Crew" spacecraft. Although the video is full 4K resolution, it has been "boxed" to a 4:3 aspect ratio, so that the actual dimensions of the active picture area are about 2880x2160. The RED Epic Dragon camera is capable of shooting at 6K resolution, so in the future even sharper ISS videos may become available.

"On Wednesday, May 27, the International Space Station took the
next step to prepare the orbiting laboratory for the future arrival of U.S. commercial crew and cargo vehicles.

Robotics flight controllers in Mission Control Houston and
Canada detached the large Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM), used as a supply depot on the orbital laboratory, from the Earth-facing port of the Unity module and robotically relocated it to the forward port of the Tranquility module.

This move cleared the Unity port for its conversion into the spare berthing location for U.S. cargo spacecraft; the Earth-facing port on Harmony is the primary docking location. Harmony’s space-facing port currently is the spare berthing location for cargo vehicles, so this move frees that location to be used in conjunction with Harmony’s forward port as the arrival locations for commercial crew spacecraft."

The Leonardo Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) is a module of the International Space Station. It was flown into space aboard the Space Shuttle on STS-133 on 24 February 2011 and installed on 1 March. Leonardo is primarily used for storage of spares, supplies and waste on the ISS, which is currently stored in many different places within the space station. The Leonardo PMM was a Multi-Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM) before 2011, but was modified into its current configuration. It was formerly one of three MPLM used for bringing cargo to and from the ISS with the Space Shuttle. The module was named for Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci...

Previous proposals

A European proposal suggested equipping the Donatello MPLM with enhanced micrometeoroid and orbital debris protection and cooling systems and leaving it attached to the ISS after the Space Shuttle fleet is retired. Costs for such MPLM modifications were estimated at $20M to $40M per unit. The MPLM would then be called a Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM), and it would house spare parts and supplies, allowing longer times between resupply missions. The proposal was rejected by NASA because it would require changes to existing plans and would entail additional costs. Internal discussions continued and managers considered the possibility of STS-133, which at that time was planned to be the last Shuttle flight, leaving its MPLM permanently attached. The United Launch Alliance also published a proposal for a system that could allow additional ISS modules to be launched on an EELV even after the retirement of the Shuttle.

On August 5, 2009 it was announced that STS-133 would indeed leave one MPLM permanently attached to the station. In October 2009, it was confirmed that Leonardo would be the MPLM converted to a PMM. It was launched on February 24, 2011. The PMM was transferred to the station using the Shuttle robotic arm and mated to the nadir (Earth) facing port of Unity.

On May 27, 2015, at 13:08 UTC, the PMM was relocated from the nadir port of the Unity module to the forward-facing port of the Tranquility (Node 3) module. This was done in order to allow Unity's nadir port to serve as a berthing port for future U.S. Commercial Crew Development spacecraft...
