The first inflatable space home will be launched on Friday, 8 April.

The Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, or Beam for short, is headed for the International Space Station.

It looks like a giant pillow and, when fully inflated in space, it will be large enough to hold a car.

Astronauts will test the module, which is designed by Nasa and Bigelow Aerospace, for two years to see how it holds up.
