The Advanced Inflatable Airlock (AIA) System is currently being developed for the Space Launch Initiative (SLI). The objective of the AIA System is to greatly reduce the cost associated with performing extravehicular activity (EVA) from manned launch vehicles by reducing launch weight and volume from previous hard airlock systems.

Our Project: Work with Engineers and Designers and Create, in Fabric, a Full-Scale Model of a Collapsible Air Lock Concept for the Space Shuttle

Marble House was built between 1888 and 1892 for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt.  It was a summer house, or "cottage", as Newporters called them in remembrance of the modest houses of the early 19th century. The Preservation Society acquired the house in 1963 from the Prince estate.  In 2006, Marble House was designated a National Historic Landmark.
