    I'm sad enough to be a subscriber!  The blanket was white (at least on one
    side) and somewhat crumpled. It was about 1 to  1.5 metres along one side
    (compared to the cosmonauts arm) but could have been bigger.
    It was a  docking hatch cover on Piers so you could  get some idea of size
    from the spec. of the docking ports.
    BTW how quickly would something like that decay??
