The Galaxy subscale space station module was scheduled to fly in 2008. It would be twice as large as its Genesis predecessors and represent a 50% scale model of the Sundancer manned inflatable space station.

AKA: Galaxy. Status: Cancelled 2008. Gross mass: 3,000 kg (6,600 lb). Height: 6.80 m (22.30 ft). Diameter: 2.20 m (7.20 ft).

It would replace two flights of the Guardian module earlier planned.

The flight would test the operational life support system that would provide a nitrogen/oxygen atmosphere to occupants of the full-sized station. The internal structural arrangement (central hardened spine, internal longerons, solar arrays, and attitude control system) would all be more representative of the operational system.

Habitable Volume: 30.00 m3.



Family: Space station orbit, Technology, Technology satellite. Country: USA. Agency: Bigelow.
