bubble! Watch an inflatable space station module explode on video

Sierra Space intentionally blew up a small prototype inflatable astronaut habitat to get ready for spaceflight.

The company has conducted what it calls an “ultimate explosion pressure test” (UBP) as it progresses along the long road to helping develop a private replacement for the International Space Station (ISS). The inflatable module, called the Large Integrated Flexible Environment, or LIFE, will form part of the larger orbital space station Reef led by Blue Origin. NASA seeks to replace the aging International Space Station in the 2030s with private stations led by industry, one of which is Orbital Reef.
