Bigelow Aerospace establishes space operations company
Posted: Sat, Feb 24, 2018, 3:37 PM ET (2037 GMT)
Bigelow Aerospace has established a new company to handle sales and operations of its planned commercial space stations. The first task for the new Bigelow Space Operations company will be to perform a market study of demand for commercial stations from government and corporate customers. Bigelow Aerospace founder Robert Bigelow said that while his company will have its first two B330 modules ready for launch by the end of 2021, it may not proceed with launch plans if there is not sufficient demand for those facilities. He warned of competition both by China's space station under development as well as NASA's exploration plans, which could keep current ISS partners from becoming customers of commercial stations.
