Mobilize To Save Transhab Mars Society

NASA’s highly successful TransHab program, which is developing inflatable human space habitation structures simultaneously lighter, stronger, and more resistant to meteorite damage than conventional aluminum modules, is in danger of cancellation. The threat comes from language inserted as sections 128 A and B of the NASA authorization bill HR 1654 which forbids the expenditure of any government funds on the development of TransHab or any other human-rated inflatable space structures. The anti-TransHab insertions were written by Jim Muncy, the aide to Space Subcommittee Chairman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA).
