Is it time to start a Bigelow thread??  Or is there an appropriate place for this important space flight experiment?

Here you go.  Unfortunately NSF's own search feature is rotten, but this was the first hit when using Google appropriately.

PSA #1: EST does NOT mean "Eastern Time".  Use "Eastern" or "ET" instead, all year round, and avoid this common error.  Google "EST vs EDT".
PSA #2: It's and its: know the difference and quietly impress grammar pedants.  Google "angry flower its" .

Sadly, UStream borked the recording; the block here is only 11+ minutes long (should be 180 minutes):

Just to put in a completely unsolicited plug for L2 ... There's a dedicated thread each month in the L2 ISS section for significantly more-detailed ISS Daily Status Reports.   ;)
