The International Space Station could get its own timeshare by 2020
COLORADO SPRINGS — By 2020 at least one part of the International Space Station could become a “timeshare.”
United Launch Alliance — itself a partnership between Boeing and Lockheed Martin — and Bigelow Aerospace are currently collaborating on how to launch a habitat the size of a small apartment to space in about the next four years.
The habitat, which is called the B330 and has about 330 cubic meters of living space, could either be attached to the ISS or float freely as its own autonomous space station, according to Robert Bigelow, founder and president of Bigelow Aerospace.
