It's more likely these are last decades. A few more years, and people will decide the ISS is a useless money drain, which they can no longer afford.

By then Bigelow will probably have his space hotel operating with SpaceX flying tourists there on a regular basis. Maybe NASA will buy one.

Nope. We all know where the money lies. SpaceX and Virgin Galactic will "merge" to form Virgin SpaceXXX. They will open up low-G sex tourism hotels in lunar orbit and on the moon safely out of jurisdictional oversight of all. Then they will fire up the sex tourism industry (along with revenue generating internet pron feed). It'll be like printing money.

No man is an island if he's on at least one mailing list.
