Modules currently in SSPF / Webcam updates
« on: 03/20/2007 07:53 PM »
Hi there!

I've been searching around the forums and can't find what I want, so I hope no one has answered this already:

Does anyone have a list of which components are currently in the SSPF and which ones are yet to arrive?


Thanks

 :)

Kibo, columbus, node 2 (Harmony) and 1 MPLM are all in this capture. Not sure where the other 2 MPLM's, Node 3 and the module that sit's on top of Kibo(ELM-PS) are.

ELM-PS has been delivered to kennedy, but not sure where it is on the base.

Quote from the kennedy multimedia site:
A flat bed truck hauls the container with the Experiment Logistics Module Pressurized Section inside away from the Trident wharf. The logistics module is part of the Japanese Experiment Module. The logistics module is being transported to the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The Japanese Experiment Module is composed of three segments and is known as Kibo, which means "hope" in Japanese. One of the three segments, the Experiment Logistics Module Pressurized Section will serve as an on-orbit storage area for materials, tools and supplies.

And photo.

Sorry forgot to say, module left japan feb 7 and arrived in florida march 13.

I don't think it has because in 2001 NASA considered making some changes to it and for it to have 16 racks instead of 8

I'm certain that the main structure of Node 3 has been built, but it is still in Italy continuing construction. It it basically the same as Node 2, with 8 racks not 16 like the 'Extended Node 3' proposal. :)

Here is a picture of Node 3 in assembly in Italy. I believe it was taken around 2005.  (www.node.msfc.nasa.gov) :)

theres a nice report in this months "spaceflight" mag,
showing a couple of the modules in the sspf,
in the article it says the cuppola is a "non esential item"and node 3 is in the "final stages of fabrication and testing",
its frustrating to think that theres another space stn waiting to be launched ..
.. its waiting in the sspf  ;)

Hi there

I've just been on the NASA SSPF video feeds and I found this 'thing'. My first thought was that it was Cupola but wrapped up, but can anyone confirm?  Secondly, there is this big white box as seen below - (Not sure if the two things are related)  :)

Mmmm... I think the first image is the CMG the crew of STS-118 was working with some time ago, but I'm not really sure...

As for the other image, I have no clue :)
