BEAM listed as docked.[edit]

BEAM is a module, not a spacecraft, and as such should not be listed among the currently docked/birthed craft.Doyna Yar (talk) 16:22, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

BEAM is not a permanent part of the ISS. It will occupy the Tranquility aft docking port for two year and them be undocked. This section is about docking and which ports are in use. Modules are designed to become part of the ISS and even have thier own docking ports. user:mnw2000 16:31, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

Temporary or not it's still a module. To quote the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module wikipedia page "The Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) is an experimental expandable space station module being developed by Bigelow Aerospace, under contract to NASA, for testing as a temporary module on the International Space Station (ISS) from 2016 to 2018." Pirs gets deorbited in 2017 to make room for Nauka, does that qualify as temporary too? BEAM has no place in the 'Fleet operations' section of the article.Doyna Yar (talk) 11:56, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Doyna's argument was persuasive. I removed BEAM from this section. user:mnw2000 15:43, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Navbox order[edit]

Navboxes are generally relevant so that is not the means of ordering them (relevance depends more on the experience level or intent of the reader), topics of more basic proficiency usually show first with more precise technical boxes placed afterwards to allow for the greatest access of readers at varying levels of experience Altanner1991 (talk) 12:05, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
