They have a sizable pledge from a donor toward the cost of permanent indoor facility once they receive the authorization from the new President.

Does anybody know how much it costs to buy one of these inflatable bubbles?

Very interesting. That is EXPENSIVE. Ten million dollars is roughly equivalent to the cost of a low end (that is, not fully tricked out) permanent building of that size. I've got to believe that, if you've got the land, a building is the better way to go.

Annual operating costs add up over the years as you can see.
