Caption

Genesis I space hotel prototype. Image from an exterior camera on the spacecraft Genesis I as it orbits the Earth. Genesis I is a prototype space station built by the private American company Bigelow Aerospace. It was launched on board a rocket from the ISC Kosmotras Space and Missile Complex, Orenburg, Russia, on 12 July 2006. It measured 4.4 metres in length and 1.3 metres in diameter on launch, but once in orbit, it inflated to twice that diameter. Genesis I, which is the first of several test spacecraft, is a one-third scale model of the modules that will eventually be used to house private space tourists. Photographed in January 2007.
