Update On Bigelow Aerospace's Genesis 2

Here is an update on all the updates to the upcoming successor to Genesis, Genesis 2.

Apparently ITAR is getting even worse:

While Bigelow Aerospace is making strides in the development of its modules, one ongoing headache is the export control and regulatory process, be it International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) or telemetry issues, Gold said. “If anything, the regulatory procedures have been more difficult for Genesis 2 than Genesis 1. It rivals, if not exceeds, the technological difficulties that we face.”

Here is another teaser from next months announcement at the National Space Symposium:

Bigelow said the business structure that the company will outline next month will not only support destinations in low Earth orbit, but also operations on the Moon and at Mars.
