Imagine living in a spaceship that arrives in space folded up before expanding…businessman Robert Bigelow’s dream is a lot closer to reality now that BEAM, the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, is expanded and attached to the International Space Station. Over the next two years, BEAM will undergo a series of tests to validate the overall performance of expandable habitats where crews could live and work. BEAM is an example of NASA partnering with industry to enable the growth of the commercial use of space.

Enjoy and share……
