They just started lifting me to put me into the PMM.

Outer foam is in place and strapped together. My SLEEPR integration is complete!

Up we go!

About to go into the RID (rack insertion device) this is where the last piece of foam will be installed.

Since my twin can't come to space with me, we're sending its face to space - you can, too! faceinspace.nasa.gov

One layer of my outer foam has been installed for flight.

How does that go - "inside, outside, upside-down..."

The lift has begun. Slow and steady now. Don't forget I'm in here.

About to be lifted by a crane so my outer foam can be installed.

Front plate is being installed. You can still see my shoulder. Once tightened another layer of foam surrounds me.

Hey, who turned out the lights!? My front foam is installed.

Side and top plates are in place. Install team is tightening the bolts into place.

My rear foam and hand covers are installed for flight.

They are performing the final foam installation.

Fit check of the foam around my head. Very nice.

My foam has arrived.

They put me into my SLEEPR
baseplate. I feel more comfortable already.

I have my protective cover on for the night. What a busy day! glad I'm getting a break tonight.
