Habitat LIFE: the inflatable dwelling that will enable living in low-Earth orbit and deep space.

Sierra Space has successfully tested its inflatable technology for the construction of the LIFE Habitat, a commercial, scientific and biopharmaceutical habitat designed to allow humans to live and work in low-Earth orbit, the Moon and deep space.

The test involved loading a one-third scale version of the inflatable habitat with a sustained amount of pressure for a month, until it burst, to get feedback on its lifespan.

The company claims that the LIFE habitat’s pressure housing design has an expected life of well over 60 years and that they continue to exceed programme requirements. In addition, the company has signed a new agreement with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center to further accelerate the development of LIFE.
