Russian company Orbital Technologies has announced its plans to launch in 2016 a commercial space station that will be used as a space hotel. It will be able to hold seven people.
Bigelow Aerospace is planing to deploy their inflatable commercial space station in 2014.
* Bigelow Aerospace plans to deploy our space station as early as 2014, ready to serve customers in 2015.
* Bigelow Aerospace clarifies that it will not be a space hotel.
* the first BA330 would hold six people on a long term basis
Because our founder is also in the apartment business, the media sometimes reports that we are building a space hotel. Instead, we anticipate that our clients primarily will be governmental and corporate entities interested in building an astronaut program or performing microgravity research.
