Sadly, we are not going to be bored today. The resupply mission has been delayed until tomorrow. On a side note, this mission includes 40 live mice. This is one of the single largest efforts to lift multiple complex organic carbon based lifeforms out of our gravity well. Years ago (1960 - Sputnik 5)...

She may well. Returning cancers tend to be increasingly aggressive. A sad thing no matter how you look at it, or your political persuasion. Tough process for all involved. If it is true, I feel for her, her family, and friends. I guess we will see if it is fake news or not, soon enough.
You can see the chamber in the top left of the image below. The access port was on the back side, opposite the injection gun (big ass appendage with yellow cap on this side). https://media1.s-nbcnews.com/j/newscms/2014_24/508361/140613-devices2_7798f5aa41ea2242c77747f714e7307c.fit-760w.jpg
There is a photo of the lab floating around. You can see the chamber in that. It is pretty big. It, as I recall, is roughly a 1.5m cube. That does not include the foundation support. I would need to check. Been a while since I stood next to it. It is currently in storage in San Diego. Edit: correcte...

Typical Brown bias. The article demonstrates some leaps of logic, and a lot of naivety regarding what is currently going on in space as well. Meh. I think two things are going to drive the future of humanity, and they are interrelated in a big way: The coming (I hope) Energy Age, and its enablement ...
If crowdfunded, it would not be to make money. The focus would be to defray the costs of moving it to a good home. It is pretty big and heavy. A lot of steel there. I know some may have some thoughts of putting it back in use, or even the chamber. However, the intent is to keep it together as a samp...
How? Ideally, the transfer is helped by cost reduction. There are some great Science Museums, however getting things there from San Diego may incur some cost. WB-8 and Chamber are not small nor lacking weight. I like the Smithsonian, however, it could be unlikely that it gets on display any time soo...
"The U.S. military won't buy weapons from other countries and freezes other countries weapons out of the market" Not true. The U.S. military has and does buy foreign systems, as well as partner regularly in multi-national development and sales engagements. The real crime is that the U.S. t...
WB-8 & Chamber are looking for a good museum home. Anyone have any thoughts on where and how to make this happen. The unit is currently in San Diego. Would also be helpful if some funds could be raised, potentially in a matching scheme to defray move costs.
