Welcome to the Space Station Hotel
A large well known national hotel chain in October 1999 has pledged $500 million dollars to begin the process of building an inflatable space station hotel. The estimated expenditures worldwide of all private and government concerns to be spent in the next 5 years on space related projects is projected to be $400 billion.

Like no other invention its so versatile you will be astounded. Read on, and remember!

The Future Is FOAM
"What makes it so unique and possible to begin with
is a " PATENTED " process of an adhesive holding
the inner walls of an inflatable form of any shape together until
foam forces them
apart,
thereby preventing the foam from developing irregular bubble formation and surge
cavities; allowing a structurally
sound wall or manifold."
Its Amazing!
Foams using silica and new polymers of incredible strength, weight saving and impervious to the elements are available and others are being developed today allowing such a diverse usage. Thickness of walls is variable from 1/2 " inch to over 10' feet thick. The finished cured product can be
machined for any purpose.


"Laymen Description"

Containers formed from flexible envelopes
having a double wall space where foam is
injected can be fabricated economically using
the same technology as air bed mattress and
inflatable pool toy construction methods in
its simplest form, which means its economical.
For space platforms the mechanism is more
complex due to the environment of space and
detailed drawings are included below. Foam of
varying composition and strength is injected
into product forms as described in the list
below and then harden into structurally sound
forms.
What makes it so unique and possible
to begin with is the process of an adhesive
holding the inner walls together until foam
forces them apart, thereby preventing the foam
from developing irregular bubble formation and
surge cavities; allowing a structurally sound wall
or manifold.
Its now possible with this "patented"
technology!

The diagram below is a cross section of the process of filling an inflatable envelope . The foam under pressure causes the adhesive holding the inner surfaces together to breakdown thereby allowing the newly released area to fill with foam. The foam then hardens and creates a permanent shell.

IN SPACE AND OTHER WORLDS

As a space station virtually any size and shape can be created. The walls of which can be of almost any thickness deploy automatically. The foam constituents can be made to resist radiation and impact from space debris. Upon deployment the internal structure is clean room ready and free of fumes and carcinogenic material due to the inner liner keeping personnel and hardened cured foam wall constituents separate from each other. Partitions can easily be automatically erected or be incorporated in the primary deployment. Manifolds for routing liquids or conduits for wires can likewise be incorporated in the primary outer shell or secondary interior compartments.

1. Space Stations of diameters limited only by payload, estimates using the largest booster rocket of a single module of 100 ft to 1,000 ft. diameter. The lack of gravity making it possible to expect diameters in the future of 5,000 ft. diameter with a technique being investigated by this company. This size will be viable for a biosphere self contained self refreshing ecological habitat for long periods of time without restocking vital necessities.
Also possible are large orbital antenna shapes such as parabolic dishes, tubes, and booms for communications satellites and actual photon reflectors. Colonies of the moon and mars are suddenly doable.

2. with some 12 companies developing small payload capability to send cargo into orbit the ratio of stored to expanded unit will be invaluable for such efforts. In addition a large hotel chain has earmarked $500 million towards the goal of an inflatable space station hotel in the month of Oct. 1999.

3. using suitable hard foam auto and aircraft main shell and frame components.

4. after market jacket to place the new space station freedom into for repairs and also a secondary jacket applied with minimal human work hours of installation protecting it from debris impacts. current plans require standoff metal studs be applied to the surface of the space station and a layer of ballistic retarding material be bolted to the ends of the standoffs some 10m inches off the space station shell surface hoping to cause the potential space debris to breakup somewhat upon striking the new first layer reducing the size of the debris as it hits the space station main body as a secondary impact.

5. robotics boom arms for space exploration that deploy from small compartments and expand to form rigid non- flexible manipulators; these would take up less room on launch in their stored state and when deployed not be subject to deflating as other proposed strictly inflated bag types.

6. orbital debris flypaper is desperately needed to catch all the small items the military and nasa track with radar. A large pancake shape of a foam inflatable will be guided into place along the trajectories of orbital flotsam and jetsam so as to have these items impact into the module consisting of a proper density foam and therefor stick into it. Each of the pancake foam walls will have three reversible thrusters at the perimeter to guide it into approaching debris paths. After the collection of a few thousand of these hazardous items the foam wall impregnated by space junk to capacity will be parked in a geo-stationary orbit along with its collection of previously lethal bits of debris left from previous missions. Some of these foam pancakes will be designed for specific sized items, this specialization will allow effective removal of space junk from destroying satellites and potential harm to astronauts. The support for lasers to vaporize space debris will in many cases cause explosive reactions of the pieces of metal and other substances to be targeted subsequently creating multiple fragments and increasing the risk from the greater number of pieces created. The foam pancake project is important to all communication businesses and all counties of the world for many reasons including nuclear security in monitoring neighbors activities and treaty adherence.

ON LAND
7.RESIDENTIAL HOUSES can be made from rectangular, cubic, or circular shapes, from several flat panel or manifold component units. Erection begins where an area of ground is cleared and leveled, the inflatable structure is then unpacked and unrolled on that leveled surface, then inflated with foam that hardens; the result will be a complete house shell ready to fit with doors and windows. All this can be done in a day for a house of anywhere from 1000 square feet to 4000 square feet. This method can be carried over into commercial buildings! The ecological advantages of using a foam construction over other building in technologies are multiple. Despite the fact that trees are a renewable resource, the burgeoning population and the need to continually build new homes and renovate old homes is a terrific burden on the eco-system. Other building technologies including concrete, brick, and steel use materials which have their limitations as well relative to the ecology.
Foams can be made from non carcinogenic materials such as the chemical polymers present in plants which grow in abundance. A projected source of plant matter which grows much faster than trees is seaweed. This material is abundant in excess of any future need with rapid growth over a period of just months instead of years for trees. Indeed seaweed is a nemesis of the waterways of the world, this nuisance plant in most cases is considered worthless and can be obtained inexpensively for processing. This is a statement for the purpose of identifying an inexpensive and plentiful material which can be used in making the foam for the containers far into the future. The potential for there to be any harmful health problems as a result of using this construction is extremely low, as their are many foam materials that have a hazard rating equal to currently use materials in the building trades; insuring that there is even a lower hazard level is the flexible envelope itself which can be made out of polyethylene, vinyl, Mylar. These several flexible envelope materials have properties allowing them to be used in the food industries, in addition where flexible envelope's require that they be made out of where considered unsafe materials for humans to be exposed to they will be a spray coated with an appropriate material for safety standards to the met.

Current foams used in the construction trades will be used in the interim prior to the implementation of alternative materials based on seaweed and algae. Both materials such as seaweed and algae to be used in the future together with currently used tested and approved foams employed in construction will have enhanced structural strength; through the addition of fine silica treated with a process to add an electron to its molecules thereby increasing its intimate bonding potential to adjacent molecules is fundamentally an inert material, silica is basically common sand and is widely abundant around the world. It should be noted that the volume of silica used per square
foot in this new foam technology will vary from just 4% to 25% of what is needed in say the common brick or cinderblock. The foam bubble geometry will make this possible through displacement using various safe gases such as carbon dioxide. Entrained gas bubbles will not deflate or out-gass due to the cured rigid hardened bubble cells of the polymer silica combination. Silica and plant or chemical polymer will be combined with a material allowing bubble surface tension not unlike soap bubbles called a surficant; these materials will then be aerated with a suitable gas such as carbon dioxide to create a foam with qualities of strength, heat and cold insulation value, light weight to cubic foot ratio as compared to other building material, and coupled to ease of shipping the inflatable prefab home or container due to its small collapsed state size allows great savings in shipping. The future of both flexible envelope and foam constituents is bright as new polymer materials are being worked on not to discover them but to develop mass production. These new polymer materials are stronger than kevlar used in bullet proof vests, they have an intrinsic strength in three planes instead of two as with previous materials. Space stations will use some of the above residential materials in modified form together with other and more exotic materials due to the environmental extremes of space.


8. A single building panel taking the place of 2 X 4's, sheathing, insulation and sheet rock ;this construction panel would be a standard size of 8 ft. wide X 8 ft. high X 8 inches thick , in exchange of wood frame, or other types of construction such as concrete and steel construction. The labor time to fabricate the foam wall replacement panel greatly reduces costs for building and can eliminate the need for wood.

9. residential backyard storage sheds. Quickly erected as opposed to the traditional 1- 5 day weekend warriors effort. Just place the inflatable on the ground and press the foam injector button and in a few minutes the shed is installed. Wait the prescribed time period and its finished.

10. insulation panels for flat areas or irregular shape areas of nearly any R value required. Roll out the panels in their collapsed state in the attic and inject foam; dust less unlike fiberglass. With appropriate density walk able too.

11. cubes of the correct density can be used for large building construction. Stone and cement replacement; steel may well be a thing of the past.

12. new and re-roof for residential and commercial. Roll the deflated state panel into position and inflate, an instant roof for flat and pitched areas.

13. walkways instead of pouring concrete.

14. roadway dividers and even roadway.

15. spans or beams.

16. emergency structures for shelter and miscellaneous uses quickly deployed.

17. backyard pools where a pit is lined with a cup shaped inflatable; or for that matter an above ground shape.

18. playground toy houses, shapes et.

19. decorative structures and or free form containers for advertising product logos et..

20. city on a flatbed truck

--------------
ABOVE AND UNDER THE SEA
21. submersible structures of very very large size when deployed underwater. Due to the buoyancy of water a large single form can be created where the interior of such a form such as a dome sphere, or tube can be filled with water prior to foam injection thereby allowing the shape to be fully expanded. The walls would then be injected with foam. Simplified manufacture eliminating complex forms for concrete or steel welded construction.

22. boat hull and superstructure components.

23. boat docks, rigid flotation segments.

24. bridge's or elements.

------------

INDUSTRIAL USES
25. compact 50 gal drums brought to construction site at 1/100 the expanded size allows 1000% extra number of containers per traditional delivery rate. The material used as the foam wall can be composed of elastic material which can withstand impact and being dropped. The EPA super fund an ongoing effort for cleanups across the nation requires millions of tons of earth combined with hazardous material to be moved to safe sites for reburial. This type of drum is cost effective to manufacture and combined with the reduced shipping cost of over 100% poses a rational choice for container in such projects.

26. large valve bodies.

27. oil and other liquid or gas storage containers like home heating oil tanks, water storage, chemical et.

28. mining, transportation or existing sewer tunnel walls can be relined. The Paris sewers were estimated to cost 10 billion dollars to repair, such a design can be used where the entryways to cavernous pipe systems prevents large replacement pieces to be installed; the small size prior to deployment of such structure permits a unit to be placed in the existing pipe and inflated up against the existing pipe walls. In effect relining the passageway with a new lining.

29. pipe of all types and sizes, manifolds.

30. auto and truck chassis and other components.



The list above of industries which this invention applies illustrates the variety of high and low ticket items that are possible to fabricate. The # 20 "city on a flatbed truck" is not meant to be humorous, as in fact a number of large structures comparable
to acity can be put on a flatbed truck in the deflated stored form. The various industries mentioned above combined together equal many trillions of dollars per year. All of the industries above are behind the times, and many of them are straining the ecosystem.

Foams using silica and new polymers of incredible strength, weight saving and impervious to the elements are available and others are being developed today allowing such a diverse usage. Existing materials can accomplish 5000 psi while new technologies using ceramics where an extra electron is added to the ceramic molecule are expected to surpass 80,000 psi. Thickness of walls is variable from 1/2 " inch to over 10' feet thick. The finished cured product can be machined for any purpose using machine tools. Typical space station wall thickness will be approximately 6" to 10" inches thick.

Silica being a very high temperature material used in cement and common tile grout is nonflammable; methods to increase silica's ability to have more of the qualities of a surficant, meaning to become elastic and capable of maintaining created bubbles during aeration while aggregate particulate of silica shift within the bubble matrix are being explored.

Fire retarding strategies are to aerate the foam with either carbon dioxide gas, halon gas together or alone, and or with other proprietary mixtures. It is anticipated that using the gases or similar fire suppressing gasses will deter the evolution of toxic fumes from fire as the heating of the foam will release fire suppressing gas, potentially extinguishing the fire before affecting the structural integrity of the foam structure. In addition proprietary nonflammable compositions are being investigated.

State federal and local zoning and safety compliance with fire and ASTM codes for strength are to be addressed during development as the need arises where its use involves residential or commercial terrestrial structures.

The first products produced for sale from the above list of uses will be:
1.) Manufacture a group of standardized rectangular containers capable of being used for the manufacture of prefabricated residential housing ranging in square footage from 1400 square feet to are feet 5,000 square feet and up.

2.) A standard 8 ft X 8 ft X 7 inch building panel taking the place of 2 X 4's sheet rock sheathing and sheet rock.

AS AN INFLATABLE SPACE STATION MODULE
The ease with which the module can be fabricated will speed up space module deployment by a factor of 10.
Any launch vehicle can carry these compact modules into orbit and beyond.
___________________________________________

As a space station virtually any size and shape can be created. The walls of which can be of almost any thickness deploy automatically. The foam constituents can be made to resist radiation and impact from space debris. Upon deployment the internal structure is clean room ready and free of fumes. Partitions can easily be automatically erected or be incorporated in the primary deployment. Manifolds for routing liquids or conduits for wires can likewise be incorporated in the primary outer shell or secondary interior compartments.

With over 12 companies developing small payload capability to send cargo into orbit the need to have a module launched using only a small amount of payload space is of great importance, where upon reaching orbit then expand to a size thousands of times the size of the deployment container.

With the needs of the international community coming to the fore in this next century all considerations will be for safety and longevity of the module performance. These priorities are addressed and presented as the " Foam Wall " space station.

The ratio of stored to expanded 1 -1000 unit will be invaluable for such efforts. In addition to such companies vying to launch payloads many large corporations are considering supporting such activities where they perceive a need to have laboratories to develop new drugs in a weightless environment. The amounts of money planned to be spent on orbital laboratories will exponentially increase in the next 5 years because of these facts.

Expectations due to the economical fabrication and other advantages of this technology are that it will play a substantial role in space research, laboratories, human habitats, internal docking of spacecraft for repairs, and colonization already planned of the moon and mars.

_______________

Inflatable/foam wall construction allows for large structures to be compacted during launch. The advantages are that a structure of virtually unlimited size can be placed in orbit. Any shape is possible, in fact parabolic antenna shapes and robotics arm segments can be sent in the small collapsed state for deployment in orbit. The hollow space between the inner and outer walls can be injected with a foam of any composition, thereby giving rise to using compositions which inhibit the passage of heat/ cold and various other radiation's. Cost can be much less than current types planned for due to the reduced expense of fabrication and smaller space required on the launch vehicle.

The entire module in its stored form can be as little as 2% or less of the total fully deployed structure; this translates into the capability of placing a space station into orbit using only one shuttle that is larger than the planned U.S. space station freedom which will require up to 12 shuttle flights. The versatile methodology of a foam allows.
Safety and structural stability are the hallmarks of any hotel accommodations. Foam wall construction offers radiation and impact resistance due to the technology here for your review! Size and shape are an option. Indeed letters can be created for the shape of the modules in order to spell out the name of the business owning one. No other technology bar none has the advantages which this technology offers, not metal shell , soft wall fabric inflatable or spent fuel tanks!

Below are copies of the diagrams from the patent showing several views of a module!

...............................
(FIG. 1) Above is a diagram of a fully deployed module where the top and bottom ends are the flanges for connecting the module to another module or a supply ship; these flanges are alternately used to protect the flexible walls during shipping as shown below in Fig.2 where the storage container encapsulates the flexible walls safely within the it during transit to the site for deployment. In addition the patent claims cover the use of end flanges to connect one inflatable module to another; and any competitors inflatable will require a license for them to have flange interconnects from one module to another!

....................................
(FIG. 2) Above is a cross section of an entire module in its compact protective shipping container stage; together with valve manifolds, the catalysts to create hardening foam , injection gases and all necessary components necessary for deployment including habitat atmosphere inject mechanism The serpentine line is the collapsed flexible envelope encapsulated within the protective dual outer shell flange connector members. Upon deployment the container comprised of two halves of a cylinder separate to become the end flanges capable of coupling to other modules or supply vessels.

....................
(FIG. 3) Above is a cross section of the injection tube and partial cutaway of the inflatable envelope structure being spread apart by the injected foam.
The foam injected into tube 17 enters manifold tube 10 and exiting through holes 26; the foam 25 forces apart the flexible walls 7 & 27 breaking the adhesive barrier 23 as the foam fills the created space of the inner wall cavity. Upon completion of the filling of the inner wall area the foam cures into the hard shell module enclosure. Foam compositions have additives to prevent penetration of radiation and space debris impact, and can be tailored to meet specifications of the end user.

A complete system to store and deploy an inflatable module.
=================================
1. The rapid deployment of the module in any shape such a parabolic reflector shapes which can be coated on the parabola surface with an antenna conductive surface while it can be made hollow to double as a storage container of gas or liquid.

2. The foam injected can have additives to prevent the penetration of radiation such as lead particles and or have the foam molecule have water molecules attached to them in an intimate form. Water is an excellent shield from radiation.

3. The foam used can have special additives mixed into the foam composition to increase strength and prevent penetration impact of space debris. Studies have been carried out where extra electrons are added to various materials at the molecular level dramatically increasing the strength of the material. In short it has the most survivable potential potential of any other realistic design. 4. It can be compacted into a small container taking up a small space during liftoff thereby being suitable even for small payload capable launch vehicles.

5. It has advantages over modules made of layered fabrics which are bulky and limited as to the size possible to deploy due to the sheer bulk of the layered wall; with the foam technique a much larger module can be deployed using the same storage space Hard metal container modules are limited to the size of the cargo bay of the ship it is deployed from; along with the limitations of the ability to shield the occupants or equipment from radiation and impact due to limitations of wall thickness. Soft inflatables are typically multi layer flexible material lacking in all the categories of protection. Planned utilization of the expendable fuel tanks of the current space shuttle are of limited size, have limited radiation and impact resistance; and require cleaning of toxic fuel from the interior prior to inhabitation. The fully deployed foam wall module shown on this page becomes a hard shell of virtually any size, shape, thickness, and strength when fully cured and cannot deflate as a fabric container.

6. The foam wall can be made many feet thick as is needed to accommodate design parameters.

7. The structural wall does not have to be fabricated as fabric laminates which can be very bulky per square foot of habitable area, as this design self fabricates by virtue of the injected foam. The cured foam itself is the structural wall.

8. The foam method insures a barrier to the conditions of space automatically by virtue of the nature of the technique where the foam composition automatically creates on its own an impermeable barrier to the conditions of space, as opposed to human constructed barriers requiring fabrication.
9. There is no need to erect or assemble, it automatically self deploys. Self deploying reduces the astronauts liability of injury from unnecessary assembly of the structural components.

10. It is labor economical, as there is only a need to fabricate the envelope and the injected foam creates the structural aspects.

11. Finished interior work or storage spaces are free of fumes; as the foam stays only in the hollow wall area, and can be used from the very beginning of being deployed as clean room areas if desired, due to the fact that no construction of the interior wall is necessary.
12. Large doors with vacuum seals can be made allowing launch vehicles to enter into a module. Such doors are an essential element in the progress of space industry and colonization. They will be the premier necessary component to allow the docking of spacecraft and satellites in the enclosed space of a module for repairs and service where a breathable atmosphere would surround the satellite or spacecraft to be worked by personnel without space suits. These large doors will be possible structurally for several reasons relevant to the foam wall structure being able to be thickened for strength around the perimeter of the through hole representing the entry way for spacecraft by virtue of tailoring that area to be thicker. In addition the door operate by decompressing the interior area to equalize to the vacuum of space and the door located inside the module would be pulled away from the outer wall shell and slide parallel to the inner wall sideways out of the way. The vacuum seals will be comprised of temperature controlled O-Rings impacting upon a specially designed surface of an alloy suitable for such purpose. The size of the metal portion which will hold the vacuum would ordinarily be impossible to place into orbit as prohibitive, however a proprietary design has been devised to overcome this problem to create a door over 300 feet and larger across for entry of space shuttles into the interior of a space station. Additionally a proprietary mean to accomplish a large diameter vacuum seal which does not use contemporary means to create such seal, will remain a trade secret for the forseeable future.

13. The weightlessness of space will allow such structures to have the foam cure without stress developing in the foam structures in earth gravity. In addition the use of spinning while being cured can induce density changes in the foam at the equatorial zone for purposes of creating added strength on modules which will carry a load at the equatorial zone and spin to create artificial gravity during the time it is occupied by humans or experiments.

14. Insulation from heat and cold, foam is a natural due to entrained bubbles of various combinations of inert gases or other gases; and the material injected into the wall creating the structural shell is comprised of foam.

15. Diameters large enough to spin, thereby creating artificial gravity are doable. Indeed it is essential for human health over prolonged periods in the weightless environment of space; as without gravity changes to bone mass and heart health are adversely affected.

16. The injected inflatable container is not the load carrying structural member, the cured foam is; this fact is an advantage as the inflatable container can be made of thinner material allowing a smaller storage deployment volume; therefor it has the potential to deploy a larger inflatable structure per volume than for example fabric laminate module types.

17. Biosphere's can be more easily constructed using this method. Large diameter ellipse shapes can be deployed and rotated axially to creating gravity and prevent bone loss and maintain musculature of inhabitants indefinitely. In addition around the axial equator a trough of water can be maintained much like an active moving body of water to provide for natural oxygen production from edible plankton.

18. Long distance space ship hulls can be fabricated from modules in orbit so as to reduce the number of launches from earth.

19. It will take 6 months to complete 9 modules each having dimensions of 80' x 100' with one module specially made to have a wider 100' diameter and a large hatch of 80' diameter. Two shuttle storage bay sized deliveries would be necessary.
20. All components for module fabrication have been researched, source subcontractors have been located.
21. The practical merits of choosing to make modules over delivery vehicles is that there will be better and better designs of delivery vehicle; but there can be a superior module to all other designs, of which this is!
22. The application of an outer skin of Kevlar which normally has characteristics called "creep" meaning it will stretch and would be somewhat dangerous to use on a soft inflatable, would not be a problem for our rigid foam wall technology due to the fact that there is no dependence on the shell to maintain its shape from pressure; it maintains its shape due to rigidity! So the application of Kevlar and other synthetic impact resistant materials having creep is not a problem.
23. The patents coverage of end flange connectors allowing one module to connect to another is a hallmark of this technology. No prior art of inflatables demonstrates this fact and it is a part of the claims therefore excluding others from connecting their modules together without obtaining a license from the company.
______________

The space station above was conceptually designed in three sections. The overall size is 540 feet long and 155 feet wide; Large enough for a space vehicle to fit inside one of the deployed modules for docking and repairs, this fully deployed size originally came from a compacted cylindrical shipping container 30 feet wide and 30 feet long.

(((((((((((((( -5- )))))))))))))))

The panel below is an inflatable rectangular shape exactly like an inflatable air bed mattress with the difference of having the patented adhesive bond on the inside surfaces, making it possible to fill it with foam evenly and completely; thereby creating a structurally reliable panel for construction purposes. Without the adhesive this process of creating a structurally sound panel would be impossible! Such an inflatable container envelope can be constructed out of vinyl, mylar or other materials. Beams for carrying a load are fundamentally of the same construct. This is the simplest form of the invention.
