    So was this due to actual launch velocity / rocket thrust different than normal or just a fortuitous alignment of the iss orbit with a launch window from the launch site?

    They don’t really give any details on how/why they were able to speed the process up incredibly from 3 days to 4 hours. I’m sure it has to do with where the vehicle is placed in orbit but I’m curious to the details. Anyone care to explain?
