    Space Station Blow-Ups

    This has a great possibility fir space expansion. Just blow up an add on room.

    NASA buys $18M inflatable room for international space station | Fox News
    NASA officials have said that BEAM could be on orbit about two years after getting an official go-ahead. The module will likely be launched by one of the agency's commerical cargo suppliers, California-based SpaceX or Virginia-based Orbital Sciences Corp.
    Bigelow's dreams don't stop at the International Space Station. The company wants to launch and link up several of its larger expandable modules to create private space stations, which could be used by a variety of clients.
    Tenants could get to orbiting Bigelow habitats in several different ways. The company has set up a partnership with SpaceX for use of its Dragon spacecraft and another one with Boeing, to use the aerospace giant's CST-100 capsule.
    If the earth is over crowded, just get a blow up bungalow in space.

    Seems like a fantastically wise and much needed expense.

    Just looked on Wikipedia and apparently the annual budget of NASA is $18B. That's crazy!
