NASA Langley Tweetup - November 8th, 2011
So - this photo might be what an astronaut will see while falling asleep on Mars. 
It’s a picture I took. It’s really interesting, so I wanted to revisit and explain. It’s a photo of an inflatable airlock living space being tested by NASA. The ceiling of it. It was a small room with a thick door on either end - your ears pop when they seal it off.
This is just a beginning prototype, but inflatable technology might be used to keep humans on Mars, or the moon, for extended periods of time in the future. “Like living inside a basketball,” they said.
