Marcus Aurelius: "Since the beginning, Nanoracks has sought to own and operate a private space station to fully unlock market demand," said Jeff Manber, CEO and co-founder of Nanoracks

There is no market demand beyond space tourists, and they're going to be bored of smelling their own puke and farts after a few hours.  There ain't nothing to do up there but look out the windows.


There's something else people will want to do, and it won't be easy to clean up in zero g.

I hope Blue Origin is handling the valves
