Will NASA TV be covering this? Anyone know?
5:30 a.m., Saturday, April 16 - Coverage of the Installation of the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) to the ISS (all channels)
Is there anything in all these threads about why they're taking so long to inflate this thing?
Inflation's not scheduled until sometime in May. Probably want to have all the VVs out of the way in case the pimple goes pop. After-all, zits are part of being a teenager.
I wonder how much of a debris problem that would cause. It could be very bad but I doubt it will happen. NASA and Bigelow have thought this through very well. It does raise a question though about whether the B330 that BA wants to put on ISS would be inflated first and then attached or vice versa. I'll take that question to a more relevant thread.
No LIVE stream of the BEAM removal?
