Maleable Module Makes Orbital Travel More Manageable

Inflatable Space Station

I know a lot of cynics are going to discredit this immediately – in spite of their lack of research or advanced degrees – but the idea behind it seems pretty reasonable, and the fact is this is a test. And if there’s one thing that any good science teacher has taught us – or Isaac Asimov, for that matter – you’ll never really know whether or not something works out in a simulation. Everything has to be tested. What if this is the next big thing? We may have to settle for it until we can overcome the limitations of earth’s gravity with a space elevator.
