    I was reading about this yesterday, but didn't know NASA was going to live stream the actual attachment of the module.

    Watch NASA attach the first inflatable habitat on the ISS

    BEAM Me Up! Prototype Space Room Could Lead to Inflatable Moon Bases

    This is pretty cool. What the company hopes to achieve is nothing short of miraculous and would make living in space (or the moon, Mars, etc.) much easier due to the lesser cost of deploying a habitat.

    The ISS module is to be tested for two years to determine if an inflatable habitat is doable. So, if you're up at 5:30am Eastern this Saturday, tune in to watch the show.
