Submission + - Astronauts having trouble with Tranquility module (usatoday.com)

Coldeagle writes: Astronauts ran into trouble while trying to connect up the new Tranquility module onto the ISS. A critical insulating cover didn't fit quit right:

"The fabric, multilayered cover is supposed to go between Tranquility and its observation deck, but the metal bars are not locking down properly because of interference from a hand rail or some other structure at the hatch."

One has to wonder if this is another imperial metric snafu.
