Bigelow Aerospace Update


Click the arrow to watch the film. Video source: Bigelow Aerospace YouTube channel.

Bigelow Aerospace released on July 29 a 6½ minute promotional video on its upcoming BEAM module scheduled to launch next year, and the BA-330 habitats planned to launch in 2017.

From the video, it's clear that Bigelow is targeting nations as customers, not private individuals.

The video begins with the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, scheduled for deployment at the International Space Station on the SpaceX CRS-8 mission in late 2015.

After that is footage of a BA-330 protoype being tested in a large pool at Bigelow's North Las Vegas facility.
