NASA’s Game Changing Development Program is the agency’s attempt to develop revolutionary technologies as quickly as possible. One of the many goals? Taking that trip to Mars.

The biggest idea, however, might be the use of inflatable structures to help scientists and astronauts camp on Mars. That’s right: the future of NASA could be in a hacked version of the bouncy castle.
