How To Make an Origami BEAM – Fold your own space station module!

To coincide with the expansion of the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM), a technology demonstration for the International Space Station, here is a simple and fun activity called ‘origaBEAMi’ to enable you to build your own miniature BEAM module that you will be able to expand on your own — all simply by a series of folds of the paper model provided.

Download the printable BEAM module paper and crew procedures with full instructions: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/news/origaBEAMi to view or download the ‘crew procedures,’ which contain step by step instructions on how to print and fold your BEAM module. This video will walk you through folding a paper module in real-time.
