Cool new Genesis-I Video


Unlike so many others who came before them, Bigelow Aerospace is setting a new standard for success when it comes to experimental spacecraft. Much like the engineers at Scaled Composites (The folks who brought us SpaceShip One), the people operating the Genesis-I inflatable spacecraft project make it look easy.

They just posted some cool new video of their little inflatable space station, here. Check it out.

For now the things will act more like the Goodyear Blimp than Deep Space Nine. The company is offering to put various personal items aboard the next craft for a small fee. The deal is open to anyone. Find out about it here. But don't plan on sending anything you might want back...
