Cracks appearing on the International Space Station are 'fairly
serious issue' - and there are probably MORE yet to be found,

Uh oh ... will China soon have the only remaining
space station ?

Metal fatigue is always a big problem, and on the ISS
we are talking about extremes in temperature an even
a fair bit of radiation exposure.

The Russian fuck-up that sent it spinning a few
weeks ago didn't help anything.

There has been a lot of research into inflatable
modules for space stations. They can be packed in
nicely and they're relatively cheap. Then you ferry
up the stuff that goes inside. THIS might be the time ....
