North Las Vegas may be known for many things (and not all of them good), but directly across from this cache is an aerospace company's manufacturing, fabrication and test facilities for the next generation of orbiting laboratories and living space. It also houses one of their four mission control centers.
With the proliferation of private companies into the space business, NASA continues to look for cheaper and better ways of doing business. In 2015, a Falcon 9 launch vehicle will transport an inflatable module to the space station where it will be attached to the International Space Station and tested to see whether it can protect astronauts from the radiation of space and the impacts of space debris/meteroids traveling at hypersonic speeds.
Should the program prove successful these new inflatable modules could form the basis for having a semi-permanent colony on the moon.
