Vacations in outer space

CNN Money profiles Bigelow Aerospace and gives a nice overview of their immediate and long-term plans.  Next up is Genesis II in January 2007.  Bigelow’s marketing efforts also are to be commended:

With photos in hand, Bigelow Aerospace started a “Fly Your Stuff” program whereby space buffs will send, for as little as $295, prized possessions aboard the next module, the Genesis II, that’s set to launch in January. But if you’re thinking of packing up the Big Bertha that drove your hole-in-one last year, think again. The program’s sold-out.

But you can still play space bingo, which is another webcam-based experiment that Bigelow hopes to pull off aboard Genesis II. The new game will feature floating bingo balls that occasionally trigger a webcam snapshot of a single ball. People on Earth play via the Internet.
