Las Vegas-based Bigelow Aerospace wants to create its own space or moon stations, and NASA is talking with the company about how to partner on such missions. Bigelow has released a report to NASA detailing the possible space work that private-sector firms might provide. "This report implies that the private sector is very interested in lunar activity, and I think that's perfectly acceptable," said Bill Gerstenmaier, head of NASA's human spaceflight programs. "We'll combine and share with them to see what makes sense."
