Details on the Human Rated Atlas V for Bigelow Aerospace

NASA Space has details on the human rated Atlas V to launch both Bigelow's inflatable space modules and people to and from them.

Last September, Bigelow Aerospace and Lockheed Martin began a study of using the Atlas V EELV as a possible tourism vehicle.

The plan is to put the space station in a 264nmi circular repeating ground track orbit at 41 degrees inclination that would provide daily launch opportunities.
