Tracking Bigelow



Recognizing history in the making, Leonard David, writing at Livescience.com, has a couple cool links for tracking Genesis-I, the world's first inflatable spacecraft, currently floating about 550km above the Earth.
Seems the little space-blimp is doing surprisingly well.
Robert Bigelow, founder of Bigelow Aerospace, said earlier yesterday that he was prepared for anything when it came to the maiden voyage of his prototype space habitat.

But I'll bet he wasn't prepared for complete success...
