    BEAM Inflatable Module attached to ISS

    Published on Apr 16, 2016

    BEAM - Bigelow Expandable Activity Module was berthed to the Tranquility node of the International Space Station on 16 April 2016, at 09:36 UTC. BEAM is an experimental expandable capsule that docks with ISS and inflates to roughly 13 feet long and 10.5 feet in diameter to provide a habitable volume.

    Expanding technology aboard the ISS

    Published on May 28, 2016

    At the International Space Station, the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) was expanded to its full volumetric size May 28 through the introduction of air by the Expedition 47 crew onboard the station. BEAM, which was launched on a SpaceX/Dragon cargo craft April 8 and installed on the aft port of the Tranquility module April 16, is the first expandable component to be attached to the station and a prototype of structures that may be used in the future for habitats associated with deep space exploration. Measuring 11.6 x 10.5 feet, BEAM is expected to remain attached to the station for two years with crew members making occasional visits inside to check its systems.

    BEAM Me Up: Space Habitats

    Published on Nov 21, 2016

    Imagine living in a spaceship that arrives in space folded up before expanding…businessman Robert Bigelow’s dream is a lot closer to reality now that BEAM, the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, is expanded and attached to the International Space Station. Over the next two years, BEAM will undergo a series of tests to validate the overall performance of expandable habitats where crews could live and work. BEAM is an example of NASA partnering with industry to enable the growth of the commercial use of space.
