"Frankly, you hear a lot of talk about inflatables. People use them in PowerPoint charts…but that only takes you so far. There is no real data in regard to how an inflatable habitat is going to function in space. We expect to learn a lot from these initial Genesis launches, in regard to our basic engineering and the concept as a whole," Gold explained.
