Bigelow Aerospace of North Las Vegas has unveiled new plans to create a Moon base.

This base can accommodate four people for a long duration or six people for 120 days on the surface of the Moon. Habitat interior volume is 330m³, not including two airlocks.

Crew quarters

Interior accommodations include six large crew quarters, a large amount of storage capacity, two toilets and two galleys. On either side of the habitat are two airlocks- each with double compartments.

Attached to the airlocks are opposing propulsion and warehouse structures: One warehouse is large enough for a solar array field to handle all of the power needs. The second warehouse is large enough to store two full-scale, two person cabin enclosed lunar rovers.
