RELL is a robotic tool operated remotely by mission controllers on the ground, created to facilitate space station repairs, but requires crew schedule and airlock availability to bring RELL outside the station with the use of station's Dextre robotic tool.

Outfitted with mass spectrometers capable of "sniffing" out the presence of gases such as ammonia, these robotic tools are used to detect leaks from the station. It also needs to be bought outside the space station using the Dextre robotic arm- used to perform maintenance operations.

The robot hotel is more formally known as the "Robotic Tool Stowage" unit, or the RiTS for short, because NASA loves nothing quite so much as it loves acronyms.

This Dragon Capsule previously launched the CRS-4 and 12 missions to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

In January, the capsule is scheduled to re-enter Earth's atmosphere and splash down in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Baja California with 3,600 pounds of return cargo.
