Rather than participate in fly-by suborbital flights, which are being offered by companies like Virgin Galactic, SpaceX Corp. has teamed up with Bigelow Aerospace to offer an experience in a microgravity living environment. The plan, laid out in a jointly issued news release, calls for clients to go into orbit via SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft, and link up with Bigelow's BA 330 inflatable space habitat. Each BA 330 private space station houses up to six adults, and the modules can also be strung together to create a larger space station complex. Solar arrays power each unit, and the modules will feature four large observation windows coated with UV protection film. Astronaut training programs will also prepare passengers for the rigors of space travel and microgravity living.
