Talk:Space Station Freedom

In the section which addresses conversion to ISS. There seems to be an error. The station was not scaled back to only carry 3 people instead of seven. 3 people is just the maximum capacity it can house with the ammount that has been built. The total capacity of ISS should be more than 7. --HFarmer 19:32, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Shouldn't this be rendered as "Space Station Freedom" ?[edit]

If I'm reading this right, this would be a vessel of type "space station", named Freedom. So shouldn't Freedom be italicized throughout?--NapoliRoma (talk) 14:40, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Habitable or Pressurised Volume of National Sections versus the whole of the ISS[edit]

Habitable/Pressurised Volume inconsistency:

This article states the Space Station Freedom's habitable volume as 878 cubic metres. This is slightly more than the pressurised volume of the entire International Space Station, which is stated in the Wikipedia article on the ISS as being 837 cubic metres. (Freedom is one of four national space stations, that comprise the International Space Station, the other three being Russian, European and Japanese.) This is obviously an error. - Elizabeth Jane -- (talk) 16:17, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

The current US component of the ISS is not the originally planned Freedom. Note that the lede refers to eventual contribution to ISS as "the remnants of the project."--NapoliRoma (talk) 04:47, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Conversion to the ISS: Area comparison?[edit]

The last section says: "To accommodate reduced budgets, the station design was scaled back from 508 to 353 square feet (47 to 33 m²)(...)." Does anyone have an idea where these numbers could be sourced from, and what they mean? They seem very wrong and it's not clear if they refer to the whole station or the US-operated part. I think we should compare interior volume instead, or delete this entirely (which is what I'm planning to do). Lexif (talk) 09:54, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
