BLUE Origin, owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has announced plans to launch a space business park used for commercial purposes.
The company said the 32,000 sq ft station would provide customers with an ideal location for “film-making in microgravity” or “conducting cutting-edge research” and said it would also include a “space hotel”.
Set to be named “Orbital Reef,” the station is expected to operate by the end of the decade.
Promotional material released by the company claims the station will be a “mixed-use business park” in space and will host up to 10 people.
The company will partner with Sierra Space and Boeing to build the outpost.
