Updates needed[edit]

It appears that this article desperately needs to be updated with current details. Medevilenemy 05:31, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Consider rename[edit]

Resolved

I suggest we consider renaming this article to Destiny (ISS module) to be consistent with Columbus (ISS module) and Harmony (ISS module). Any objections? (sdsds - talk) 18:49, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Makes sense. I recall there was a post somewhere (where, I am not able to recall at the moment) about the various names, and standardization of them, but it makes perfect sense to me to name the components consistently. ArielGold 19:39, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

"Living Quarters"[edit]

Several ISS modules are, in part, living quarters for astronauts, but there is very little description in any article about where and how the crew sleeps, eats, washes up, all that fun human stuff. I can't even find out how big ISS is inside--same as a three-bedroom house? Six? Somebody must have that info.

The human habitability element is missing. Isn't that what the ISS is all about? 68Kustom (talk) 10:57, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Spots?[edit]

Does anybody know what the black on white spots are for? 95.119.235.151 (talk) 21:53, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I know I'm a little late to this particular party, but I was looking at photos of the module and wondering the same thing. I think I found our answer, though...

According to this guy (who may or may not be a reliable source, although it certainly "sounds" like he's right) -- it's part of the Advanced Space Vision System (he calls it the "Orbital Space Vision System"), on which Wiki has a page here. The general idea, as I gather, is that since glare and all make it hard to see things in space to begin with --after all, there's no atmosphere to kind of soften and smooth things out like that-- and because you can't get accurate depth perception from a single camera (you need stereo vision for that; that's the reason we usually get two eyes) the dots act as sort of a location code thing so that you can tell where you and your craft are in relationship to certain modules and docking ports and whatnot on the ISS. That way you don't get a Shuttle nose (or part of a Soyuz) in the wrong place (for example, crashing into the hull of the Destiny module).

If anyone needs to contact me, I'm laserhawk64@gmail.com... 174.194.7.188 (talk) 17:43, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
