Photo Gallery for the up and coming inflatable space station

How many generations until we send our children to space?


The New York Times has recently featured a photo gallery of the Bigelow Aerospace’s privately owned space station. What makes this space station so interesting is that it is inflatable. This structural design holds many practical applications, the most prominent being its compact storage capabilities. The station can be fit into a far smaller area during launching, and then once in space it can be inflated to its full capacity.

Privately owned space stations and relatively low cost rides into space is a fast approaching reality. For more information on the future of commercial aerospace flight visit this New York Times article.
