Space Travel: Robert Bigelow and The Inflatable Space Pods

I’m still on a space travel kick … Here is an interview from “60 Minutes” with the CEO and Founder of Bigelow Aerospace, Robert Bigelow. He’s talking, and showing off, his inflatable space pods – and he’s talking aliens.

There’s a new space race and it’s not between the U.S. and Russia. It’s between private companies and it’s attracted multimillionaires and billionaires, like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. A less likely player is Las Vegas real-estate tycoon, Robert Bigelow, who, at 73, is making the biggest gamble of his life — not on rockets — but on expandable spacecraft, large, lightweight structures that inflate in space, a technology that could dramatically change how humans live and work in zero gravity.
