We can't believe how realistic "Ed" (the CG creation of artist Chris Jones) looks as he locks eyes with us. Every time we watch the video, we're in awe of the talent required to create something so beautifully rendered. Add to that the fact that Jones is self-taught, and it's truly remarkable.
We're also arguing over how much we'd shell out for vacations into space; Bigelow plans to send up a large inflatable module for the ISS at some point in the next 5 years or so, but currently you'd be looking at a $51.5 million price tag. Too rich for our blood.
