    "Film crews could use ISS as a floating backdrop for ads and films of the future."

    "Some companies might want to go even bigger and send their own module up to the International Space Station. If they do, NASA has made sure that they will have an available docking port. The agency is making the port on the station’s Harmony module available for a commercial habitat to attach to for a limited period of time. Habitats that dock to this port will have access to the station’s utilities, and astronauts could potentially use the module during their stay in space. NASA will soon ask for proposals of habitats that can be attached to Harmony and will make final selections by the end of the fiscal year, according to the space agency."

    A DSMC2 shaped module attached to the ISS would be nice. Wonder if they use a PL mount?

    I came close two years ago. Really, really close.

    If you're curious, for the duration of that project, it would have been around $27m.

    Great adventure for sure,
    But I have decided that as for myself I am moving to a life on the water, literally :)

    Either way, I am not ashamed to say that I failed 3 of the 5 main physical tests for a similar Space Venture, I guess Phill, is in much better, stronger, healthier shape then me by a long shot, but look forward to see what the future holds for Humanity out there.
