A-Loop commercial LEO space station

The A-LOOP is designed to make long-term stays in space comfortable, while being efficient and effective. The concept comprises all necessary life support systems, a habitation deck (crew and exercise), a science deck (airlock, payload space, rack system), and an experimental centrifuge to study the health effects of temporary artificial gravity during long duration stays in weightlessness.
