Any ideas to re-locate the cupola? Was thinking the same... bad thing.
Yay, ISS now has PMM! Boo, no Soyuz flyaround. Quote from: apace on 03/01/2011 02:09 pmAny ideas to re-locate the cupola? Was thinking the same... bad thing.Current plan is to put PMM on Node 3 Aft, and Cupola on Node 1 Nadir. That would free up Node 3 Nadir for a VV B/U port.
With HTV-2 on the Zenith it provides good blockage for the windows. So if we wanted to attempt it again and the HTV wasn't there, we'd have to re-evalute it all.
Marcia - what was the concern.Mr Todd: Nothing particular. With this first vehicle there was too much straying from the plan and the lack of the right amount of time to get comfortable. It's a new vehicle with new systems, so there's some level of comfort they need to be able to entertain these options.
How do you transcribe their comments so fast Chris?

Pete, how likely is that PMM move? I know there's clearance issues with the FGB solar arrays, how does that play into the decision making? Has there been any thought given to when that move would occur?

I like the first image on Chris' post nine(or so) back...Photo of the hatch to PMM... on right is the label "To Hab"Ah, the best laid plans... I seem to recall that with the Jules Verne ATV, one of the crew set up their bedroom in there. I do wonder, as the supply situation sorts itself out, what kind of alternate uses the PMM might be put to. I recall that when the HAB module was first taken off the flight roster that the MPLM builders put forward a proposal to convert one of the MPLM's into a Hab module. Almost looks like we came full circle on that.
