A space habitat is a type of structure designed to provide living and working space in outer space. These habitats can be used for a variety of purposes, such as scientific research, tourism, and private space exploration. They typically include a range of amenities such as living quarters, laboratories, and recreational areas, and are designed to be self-sustaining over long periods of time. Space habitats are typically built in the form of a spacecraft and may be launched by a rocket or other launch vehicle. Some space habitats are designed to be permanently attached to a space station or other space facility.
