Where are they now?
« on: 01/14/2010 10:03 PM »
I know that the CAM is in a parking lot in Japan, and the Hab module built by Boing is being used for some sort of testing on the east coast.  But what ever happend to the "original" Node 2 - similar to the Unity Node?  I recall reading (but cannot find the link again) that a second one was built by boing in conjunction with the first one.  Anyone know where that is now?

Not sure what you're getting at here. The Node 2 on ISS was built by Alenia, and is larger than Node 1 (eight rack slots vs. four). It's not the "original" Node 2 that Don Gordon is inquiring about.

Don, I believe the other Boeing node was used as a structural test article, and I'm not sure it was ever intended to be Node 2.
