Bigelow Aerospace's New Space Station Will Be The Biggest One Ever

An-Inflatable-Space-Hotel

Bigelow Aerospace doesn't plan to stop at sending more inflatable space modules and the company is right now planning to build a huge space station that stunned the scientific world. He claims that the hotel will become part of the new space station. The company has big plans for the space stations.

In a press release this week, the company announced the creation of a spin-off venture called Bigelow Space Operations, which will operate and manage two space stations that will serve as hotels.

According to Bigelow, these stations will be the largest, most complex structures ever built for human habitation in space, with the first, B330-1 and B330-2, expected to launch in 2021. The B330-1 and B330-2 will be created to evolve in low Earth orbit, and each will be able to accommodate up to six people within its 330 cubic meters of expandable space (for comparison, the International Space Station has an internal volume of 915 cubic meters). Bigelow describes the two space stations as "the largest, most complex structures ever known as stations for human use in space".

In terms of measurements, the Bigelow B330 will be much larger than their predecessor now tested in the ISS: 14 meters long and 6.7 meters wide, for a weight of around 20 tonnes (1.3 tonnes for the BEAM, 3,2 meters long and 4 meters wide).

Earthlings may soon be able to book reservations at an inflatable space hotel by 2021.

The officer, Scot Peterson, was suspended without pay and placed under investigation, then chose to resign, Israel said . Nelson said the AR-15 needs to be banned and criminal background checks need to be expanded for anyone buying a gun.

The 72-year-old mogul's craft will orbit Earth.

The BB330s space stations that the company will launch, will have around 12,000 cubic feet of space when expanded, making them around one-third the size of the ISS.

The goal is for Bigelow Space Operations to offer multi-million dollar reservations to anyone wanting to spend time in space.

He also noted that they have been open about their intent to turn a profit on space tourism. Bigelow explained that China is working on its own space station for launch sometime in the 2020s and that the country is "offering very attractive terms and conditions and features" which will make it hard to compete with it.
