Thanks @Space_Pete ICYMI We’ve got no shortage of great ideas for increasing #spacestation utilization. Actually, we have so many ideas that we decided to build our own!

A fun time when the Space Exploration Educators Conference is in town as some space loving teachers come to visit
@Nanoracks and learn about what we do here and especially the #BishopAirlock. Thanks for coming to visit and take that enthusiasm back to those kids and inspire them!

@Space_Pete In answer to questions as to how the #Nanoracks #BishopAirlock #ISS Trash disposal system works, here is a cross section of the fully-deployed trash bag and its internal structure and another look at a spring mechanism unit.

This concept for Space Station garbage disposal, designed by @Nanoracks was launched on NASA's last resupply mission, CRS17. The concept is designed to be used by BishopAirlock to remove unnecessary items from ISS..

For quantum computers to communicate in the future, they'll need a dedicated comms network. Later this year, a tiny experiment called SEAQUE will go to the @Space_Station's @Nanoracks Bishop airlock to test 2 technologies that could make this a reality

...

NanoRacks Bishop Airlock (NRAL): The crew reviewed the big picture words in preparation for the testing of the system’s trash deployment capability later in the week. NRAL is the first-ever commercially owned and operated airlock on the ISS. It provides a variety of capabilities including jettisoning of payloads such as CubeSats, deployment of external payloads, support for small exterior payloads and locker-sized internal payloads, recovery of external on-orbit replaceable units (ORUs), and the ability to move hardware outside in support of extravehicular activities (EVAs). It is approximately five times larger than the JEM Airlock so it can accommodate more and larger payloads. NRAL’s capabilities support many different types of scientific investigations.

Systems:

NanoRacks Bishop Airlock (NRAL) Trash Deploy Preparations: Today, the crew cleared stowage from the Node 3 Port Endcone and removed vestibule covers, kickplates, and Control Panel Assemblies (CPAs) on NRAL to give access to NRAL for trash deploy activities. The crew also installed trash deployment hardware in NRAL. NRAL trash deploy activities will be completed throughout the week in preparation for the planned Jettison on Saturday.
