Public workspaces have become quite popular amongst Millenials and Generation Z kids, you know kinda like mum jeans and the front hair part. But now Jeff Bezos has decided to take that hipster driven public workspace idea and turn it into a mission. Blue Origin and Sierra Space have announced plans for what they're calling "Orbital Reef," a commercially developed, owned, and operated space station to be built in low Earth orbit.
"The station will open the next chapter of human space exploration and development by facilitating the growth of a vibrant ecosystem and business model for the future." - Quote Blue Origin 2021
This project is being backed by big names too like Boeing, Redwire Space, Genesis Engineering Solutions, and Arizona State University. It's actually designed to open multiple new markets in space.
The company will provide what they're casually calling "space transportation" ... in other words a rocket ship, logistical infrastructure and necessities like people on board to make sure the ship is all "staying in space and stuff" - Quote Amelia De Vita 2021
The station will start operating in the second half of this decade. Will you be on board?
