Please Fix the search!

NASA is finding it very hard to inflate the bouce castle .
link to storie.
some thing to do with inflatine it in a deep pool of water!
its the high pressure of the water.
in a vacuum it is Very easy to inflate a balloon.
remember the space walks with water leaking into the helmets?

we live in a workd of lyes and deception.

Hopefully they'll get it sorted tomorrow.
Guess it's kinda like putting up a new tent for the first time , easier the second time.

Moisture adhering to the outer fabric of the device could have frozen once in space, causing the fabric shell to become semi-rigid and non-inflatable for the moment.

I hope they do get it to work. I was helping Robert Bigelow Finance Genesis with a $20 Mill Loan but Bank American Killed my Deal when the Market Crashed in 2008.

Not likely the thing was encapsulated in such a sloppy way that condensation would effect it and even if it did, any time the sun hit its surface, that moisture would be history.

Flight controllers here are looking very carefully at the situation.

Obviously a major malfunction.

It just shows you that they can't get the right help these days! I mean like, where's the 'air' hostess when you need one?

So this means that the space isn't a vacuum but water above the firmament?
I always knew that NASA 's big lie, a waste of taxes to the military

The article says nothing about inflating it in a "deep pool of water" (or any water). The way I see it, the only "lyes(sic) and deception" are coming from you.

:sain

Yes! if you take the pump out of a old freezer.
you can make a pressure pump up to 400 PSI.
yes! I did test it.

or on the in side make a Vacuum pump.
Be Very very carfull it can blow up and kill!
lots of great experiments on youtube, some with high volts.

in a vacuum you only need a Very little air to inflate a balloon.
becuse the vacuum is pulling on the out side of the balloon.

Vacuums don't "pull" on anything.

The BEAM is expanded.

The Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) was expanded to its full size at 4:10 p.m. EDT. Expansion was completed as the International Space Station flew over the south Pacific at an altitude of 252 miles. The NASA and Bigelow Aerospace teams working with NASA Astronaut Jeff Williams will now begin the final step to open eight tanks of air stored within the BEAM to pressurize the module.

You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands.

Hopi Prophecy.



Peace
