Bigelow Aerospace reveals business plan


Bigelow Aerospace, the Las Vegas-based company developing inflatable orbital habitats, released new details about its business plan on Tuesday, including efforts to target both foreign government and commercial customers. At a press conference during the National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, company founder Robert Bigelow said his company planned to launch a series of inflatable modules starting around 2010 that would be capable of hosting between three and six people at a time; several modules would be linked together to form a single space station, with multiple such stations planned. One group of customers, called sovereign clients, would be astronauts from national space agencies: they would pay just under $15 million for a four-week stay, transportation included. A separate set of customers, called prime clients, would be large companies interested in leasing module space for research: a full-scale, 300-cubic-meter module would lease for $88 million a year. Bigelow expects to require up to 30 launched a year by the middle of the next decade to transport customers to and from the stations. Bigelow launched its first subscale test module, Genesis 1, last July, and its second, Genesis 2, is scheduled for launch late this month from Russia.

Hello Very Happy

UFO's Inspired The Founder Of Bigelow Aerospace?




Some people desire to visit the stars because of a few resources. Others are motivated simply by their existence. But Robert T. Bigelow, founder of Bigelow Aerospace, wants to taste the cosmos in order to establish "first contact."

His signature quirk, however, is an obsession with space that extends beyond his business interests. In addition to the $100million Bigelow has already put into BA (and the $400million more he has promised), he has doled out millions to fund research into alien abductions and UFO sightings. He's done some of the work himself, personally interviewing hundreds of people who claim to have had extraterrestrial encounters. In fact, one of the main reasons he's so eager to get his stations launched is that he thinks they might provide a step toward making contact. [...]

Years before he started building space habitats, Bigelow began looking for the truths he was sure were out there. He says he has met with more than 230 people who claim to have witnessed ETs. In the 1990s, he gave millions of dollars to launch the National Institute for Discovery Science, whose staff — which included several PhDs and ex-FBI agents — researched alien abductions, out-of-body experiences, cattle mutilations, and other paranormal phenomena.



While Bigelow's inspiration may cause others to laugh, it does however make one of the most successful space pioneers in the 21st Century a bit more interesting. This probably also explains the alien face which appears on some of their corporate logos.

Whether or not Bigelow's space stations help us to establish first contact will be something future historians will have to decide. Either way, Robert Bigelow is already making history with the launch of his Genesis I and Genesis II, and his next onemay enable our species to finally dwell among the heavens that surround us.

Hello again,

About the same topic here Arrow Colonyworlds 2

Citation:
Bigelow To Launch Human Habitable Space Station




With the recent success of both Genesis I and II, Bigelow Aerospace is quickly moving the human species from gazing at the stars to living among the heavens.

Faced with skyrocketing launch costs (due to massive inflation), Bigelow has decided to skip its "galactic phase," and instead launch a space station that may give way towards human habitation.

This dramatic rise in launch costs has forced us to rethink our strategy with Galaxy. Due to the fact that a high percentage of the systems Galaxy was meant to test can be effectively validated on a terrestrial basis, the technical value of launching the spacecraft — particularly after the successful launch of both Genesis I and II — is somewhat marginal. Therefore, we have decided to expedite our schedule yet again, and are now planning to move ahead directly with Bigelow Aerospace’s first human habitable spacecraft, the Sundancer.

We still intend to construct and test the Galaxy spacecraft and/or various parts of it in order to gain familiarity and experience with critical subsystems. However, by eliminating the launch of Galaxy, we believe that BA can move more expeditiously to our next step by focusing exclusively on the challenging and exciting task presented by the Sundancer program.


f Bigelow is able to launch a habitable space station, they will in effect break the bureaucratic glass ceiling by shattering the myth that only governments can create orbital outposts, let alone finance them.

Although Bigelow has not indicated whether they will consider placing a human within the space station, allowing a person to reside inside this inflatable home would signal a new era for NewSpace, if not for our species as a whole.


Kalinoux Respect
