more pics, now if I could only find the on orbit deployment photos.

It went up on shuttle Atlantis on STS-129, november 2009. This is the MISSE-7B experiment module and is currently mounted on the Express Logistics Carrier on the outside of the station.

You might be able to find video on youtube.

Anyways, here's more photos

here's the pic after the experiment plate is integrated into the carrier tray. This is the ram-facing experiment, and this is the one your kids names are buried inside of.
