Space Station Sunday: A New Module And A New Movie

Good afternoon, space fans!  Here's what was going on a few hundred miles over our heads this week.

In the words of esteemed space pirate Han Solo,
"She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid."

The Bigelow Expandable Activities Module (B.E.A.M.), an inflatable habitat brought to the station during the last SpaceX Dragon cargo delivery mission, was successfully installed on the Tranquility module this morning.  With E.S.A. astronaut Tim Peake on the controls, the Canadarm-2 robotic grappling arm boosted the B.E.A.M. from the Dragon module and connected it like a spacefaring Lego to the Tranquility.

While it will be several weeks before the B.E.A.M.'s innovative design is inflated, the astronauts are optimistic about the expandable new space.  Such constructs would be able to cut launch costs (due to the reduced weight of the module), save room on launches for other cargo, add significant room for experiments or storage once expanded, and overall provide a durable and relatively simple set-up for creating habitats in space.

Once expanded, the B.E.A.M. will be closely monitored for how it responds to temperature, radiation, and impacts from space debris...

...and barring issues with the inflation, will provide space for humans to work in - an important resource when building a shed in the backyard just isn't an option.

 You can read more on B.E.A.M. right here, thanks to NASA.  Congratulations on a safe installation, station crew!

In other news, the station crew kept busy with biological science experiments, from examining skeletal muscle cells for warnings of micro-gravity muscle atrophy, to monitoring immune system stats and conducting cognitive experiments.  

NASA astronauts Jeff Williams and Tim Kopra also chatted with the Today Show to discuss some of their daily space activities and how they differ from those on Earth (everything from having coffee to going for a jog has a unique protocol, in space!)


They actually have to strap into a harness for any jogs faster than this.

One of the astronauts' favorite activities in their spare time is, of course, staring at Earth and capturing the fascinating terrain from their unique vantage point.  For us still stuck on this ball of dirt, we can enjoy the astronauts' imagery in the upcoming IMAX film, "A Beautiful Planet."  Created by the director of the IMAX "Hubble 3D", this film showcases our amazing Earth in high-definition, immersive imagery.

The footage was shot over several months' worth of mission time last year, and marked the first time that 4K cameras were used aboard the ISS.  According to PR Newswire, "A Beautiful Planet" will feature "lightning storms, the continents, volcanoes, coral reefs and bright city lights on Earth", as well as imagery of the elusively amazing Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights.)  The film premieres in America on April 29th.

Watch our "pale blue dot" in high-def, full-color glory!
And this bit is just the Bahamas!

Until then, how about some of this week's excellent images from NASA astronaut Jeff Williams?

The Suez Canal.


The Himalayas (and space.)

Williams also posted a tribute to Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, who traveled skyward on April 12, 1961.  We salute you, storied spaceman!

That's all for this week, space fans.  We'll see you next Sunday with even more awesomeness from orbit.  Watch this space!


Nice try, Dubai, but you're not the whole rest of the planet.

  6. First thing's first, unless you can afford the very best then keep your expectations realistic when you are buying a telescope. Don't expect to see rivers on Mars in close up and individual rocks in the rings of Saturn. Be realistic about what a telescope for beginners will show you. However, do expect to be amazed at what you actually will see with the best telescope for the money at the lower range of budget. astronomy blogger
