It looks like a giant pillow, but is meant to be a home away from home for astronauts in space.
It's the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, or BEAM for short. Weighing more than 3,000 pounds, and measuring roughly 12-feet long and 10-feet wide when fully expanded, the module is designed to give astronauts a great deal more space to move around in during long missions at the International Space Station (ISS).
The units can be used as working or living quarters, and even be outfitted with lab equipment.
The habitat will be loaded in its "deflated" form into a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft, and taken to the International Space Station on the next SpaceX resupply mission April 8.
Once at the station, it will be unpacked and expanded to its full size — about four times that of its volume when packed.
