NASA have given out details of a competition for engineering students; design an inflatable home for space travellers.

Beforce you start scribbling down ideas and dreaming of the cash prize on offer you might want to check the rather demanding criteria thet have set.  The blow up house has to last a quarter of a century with no maintenance work or resource consumption and a near zero carbon footprint.  However, it is also has to give the hardy astronauts a comfortable and useable living space. Pretty wallpaper and pot plants are optional.

Another NASA snippet (put the kettle on Malcolm, it’s a NASA double bill today) is that on the 29th of July they are going to present the first live Tweet from outer space. One small tweet for man…etc etc…
