Nevada company sues NASA over space habitat

The lawsuit acknowledges issues including a power surge, computer failures and air conditioning malfunction affected data acquisition at times during leak tests of an expandable Bigelow B330 module.


The B330 is designed to provide a deep-space habitat for humans and cargo. The legal filing said the issues did not prevent Bigelow Aerospace from completing tests showing that B330 pressure was maintained successfully. Bigelow has a plant in North Las Vegas with a scenic view of the distant Las Vegas Strip.


It maintained it completed the contract as written and that NASA is entitled to the rest of the company data once it pays the $1 million.
