Having previous laid off over half its 90 staff in 2011, Bigelow Aerospace, the company which makes inflatable capsules for space use, has again felt the need to cut staff. Approximately one third of its currently employed 150 staff are believed to have been laid off in a cost cutting measure. The company is currently working on the completion of its BEAM (Bigelow Expandable Activity Module) prototype unser a US$17.8 million NASA contract which will be fitted onto the International Space Station.
