Hopefully that should come down pretty quick as 'fluffy' as it is...

Looks like the FRAM remains attached to the Dextre effector right? It appears there was an emergency separation mechanism to permit jettisoning the voluminous array itself.


Interesting also how the SPDM is grabbing the FRAM with both arms to better rigidize the system.

Now, remains to put the FRAM in the trunk ...

This was from last week, but I hadn't seen it posted yet:

ISS NICER - First Deployment & Range of Motion Checks

Shouldn't reality posts be in "Advanced concepts"?  --Nomadd

ROSA has been jettisoned by SPDM, The roll up did not lock !

So, did it redeploy by itself as soon as the roll-up motor was de-powered?

No it was redeployed and locked out in the deployed position to guarantee maximum rigidity for jettison from its FRAM-to-ESPA adapter.
