ЦитатаSpaceX to deliver Bigelow blow-up job to ISS astronauts Inflatable home heads into orbit this September

Vid + pic Nevada-based Bigelow Aerospace has been showing off the latest addition to the International Space Station: an inflatable module that will be used as a lounge and test facility in orbit.

The Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) is a 13ft by 10ft inflatable capsule that will be lofted up to the ISS as part of a SpaceX resupply mission on September 2, weather permitting. The 3,000lb unit will be attached to the ISS for two years and give the crew somewhere new to stretch their legs.
The BEAM uses multiple layers of high-tech fabric to keep the air in and micrometeorites and other space debris out. By eschewing metal, the Bigelow module is much cheaper to get into orbit than a standard capsule, and the cloth walls have been extensively tested.
Bigelow launched its first bubble capsule into orbit in 2006, and a second one in 2007. They are both still in orbit, and the outer skin has survived longer than expected. The BA330, a 45ft by 22ft module that the firm wants to use as a habitat in space and on other planets (think space hotels), is entering production.
In 2012, NASA signed a $17.8m deal with Bigelow to provide a module for the ISS, and on Thursday Bigelow showed off the space-station-bound module to the press.
"NASA understands that the agency can generate more innovation and attract more investment in space by partnering with America's commercial space industry and its entrepreneurs," said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden.
"Our plans for exploration in the 21st century intentionally rely on American commercial partners in every aspect of what we do, whether it is rockets to get to space or new technologies such as the BEAM expandable habitat for living in space." ®

ЦитатаBigelow Module Ready To Fly to Space Station

WASHINGTON -- A module built by Bigelow Aerospace will join the International Space Station later this year in a test of both the company's technology and NASA's use of alternative contracting techniques.
NASA and Bigelow Aerospace marked the completion of all the development milestones for the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) in a ceremony March 12 at the company's North Las Vegas, Nevada, headquarters. Bigelow built BEAM under a $17.8 million contract NASA awarded in late 2012.
Bigelow will ship BEAM to the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, in late March for integration with a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft. That Dragon will transport BEAM to the ISS on a mission scheduled for September. The station's robotic arm will then attach BEAM to a port on the Tranquility module.
When fully expanded, BEAM will provide 16 cubic meters of additional volume for the station. BEAM will be attached to the station for a minimum of two years to allow astronauts to test the performance of the inflatable module in the space environment, including how much radiation and micrometeorite protection it provides.
"The lion's share of our experience is with rigid structures," said Jason Crusan, director of the advanced exploration division of NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate, in a March 12 interview. "This gives us an opportunity to get real some real on-orbit performance data."

While inflatable modules have shown promise for future exploration architectures, there is limited data about their performance, forcing engineers working on models of those systems to use a number of assumptions. "When you run those models with those assumptions, inflatables don't always come out with the lowest mass and best trades," Crusan said. "Getting that on-orbit data will allow us to refine those models."
Once installed, BEAM will be largely sealed off from the rest of ISS, with astronauts entering it every four to six months to retrieve data from sensors inside it. Crusan suggested NASA will consider making greater use of the module over time as the agency becomes more comfortable with its performance. That would require additional work inside the module, he said, since it has no active life support system beyond some fans.
BEAM allows NASA to test not just engineering models, but acquisition models as well. NASA's contract with Bigelow is a firm fixed price one that includes performance milestones through launch and testing of the module on the station. "If it doesn't work, they don't get paid," Crusan said of Bigelow.
That approach let NASA take more of a hands-off approach during BEAM's development. "It allowed us to back off on some of the insight and oversight," Crusan said, adding that a team of fewer than five NASA employees managed the project.
Bigelow is motivated to make BEAM work since it is a major step towards future, much larger expandable modules the company is developing for commercial use. "It's a proof of concept," said George Zamka of Bigelow Aerospace in a March 12 interview. "We will be interested to see what the astronauts' reactions are."

BEAM module waits for transportion to the ISS
http://www.spaceflightinsider.com/missions/iss/beam-module-waits-for-transportion-to-the-iss/

ЦитатаBigelow Aerospace is still awaiting word on when their Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) will be transported to the International Space Station (ISS). Engineers at Bigelow packed up the unit for transportation to Florida from their Nevada headquarters in March of this year.

The module was supposed to fly to ISS in September aboard SpaceX's CRS-8 mission. However, that was before a Falcon 9 rocket, carrying the CRS-7 Dragon cargo ship bound for the outpost disintegrated during launch.

SpaceX is currently working on returning the Falcon 9 rocket to flight status after having determined that the failure was caused by a faulty mounting strut holding the helium tanks in place in the booster's second stage.

The Return to Flight mission is scheduled to carry a series of 11 satellites for Orbcomm no earlier than sometime in November. This switch to Orbcomm from the originally scheduled SES-9 satellite will let SpaceX test the relight capability of their upgraded upper stage before it is needed on the SES flight.

CRS-8 will launch after the Orbcomm and SES missions fly. BEAM will be tucked into the trunk of the Dragon capsule. Once berthed at the orbiting lab, the station's robotic arm will take BEAM and berth it to the aft port of the Tranquility module.

SpaceX надеется посадить ступень ракеты-носителя Falcon 9 на землю, используя посадочную площадку "Landing Complex-1", которая находится на Базе ВВС США, Мыс Канаверал. 

При одобрении Федерального управления гражданской авиации и военных, а также готовности SpaceX, это может произойти уже в текущем месяце (предположительно 15 декабря).

как писали про текущий Сигнус - срочная дозагрузка один из плюсов Дракона. Перенесут выбор победителей еще раз... Да и полет Антареса  230  будет плюсом к объявлению итогов

что такое " beta cutouts" ?
Период времени, когда орбита почти непрерывно освещается Солнцем, и корабль перегревается.

спасибо. а то что он белый не помогает?
