Well, I head back from my friend.  He said that he really couldn't talk much about the shielding on the Bigelow modules, but there are some articles on space.com that talks about them.  Sorry Wrangler.
could you in principle sausage link them together into a donut shape for a circular station with artificial gravity?

And so, without further ado, the question AND answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything is:

(-80538738812075974)^3 + (80435758145817515)^3 + (12602123297335631)^3 = 42

So which one is Life, which one is The Universe, and which one is Everything?  I mean you have three addends, clearly it's a 1:1 ratio that equals 42.

No worries, as long they have them is what i only care about it.  Corp secrets is to be and should be expected!  :)

Cosmic Radiation is one those things that really big road block in doing things in space with people.  I heard somewhere (i don't recall so don't sue me.) that one possible thing is to put human waste in the linings of the wall, since some property of makes it harder for cosmic rads getting through. 

I for one, would want extra shielding from the shielding.  Especially a plumbing problem accrues.

Would be nice to think humans could (in principle) do better?

Nothing escapes from the pull of a black hole but I have yet to find a vacuum that will remove my dogs' hair from our couches.

Light nuclei (especially hydrogen) are good at slowing down neutrons.
