Bigelow’s BEAM module is being expanded this morning on the International Space Station. It’s an extremely slow process that’s now been going on for about 3.5 hours, but it seems to be progressing well.

BEAM is being expanded using air from the space station. It will then be pressurized using tanks on board the module.
