This smells like japanese investment FOMO, same as how Spaceflight Inc got bought out. It isn't enough to pull Dreamchaser over to H-3 (assuming that's even a thing in the face of HTV-X and the planned manned capsule variant).

A rumor heard chatting with people at the #ascendspace conference today: the head of Sierra Space's commercial space station work, Neeraj Gupta, has left to go work for a competitor, Voyager Space. It comes amid questions about the future of the Orbital Reef station.

LIFE is constructed of high-strength "softgoods" materials, which become rigid when pressurized. The test article stands at 20.5 feet tall, with a diameter of 27 feet and internal volume of 10,000 cubic feet. For the UBP test, it is supported by a 100,000 lb test core and stand.
