United State.- blue originAirline Jeff Bezosand the “initiation” state of North America ColoradoSierra Space, has come together to take another step in space tourism to become the largest Space real estate developers. The first step will be the Orbital Reef space station, a business center in low Earth orbit, which, according to its creators, will begin construction in 2027.
the ‘Coral reefsIt will be one of the special initiatives that will replace International Space Station When she retired after more than two decades of service. It will consist of inflatable modules and the plan is for it to serve as a platform that will allow humans to live and work comfortably from Earth’s orbit short.
This new space station It will have offices, bedrooms and rest roomsrestaurants and even green spaces. This office space promoters say their clients will cover transportation,dwelling in space And the possibility of using their scientific equipment. This structure is designed for companies in the research, industrial or commerce sectors that will be able to register their corporate address at Coral reefs and use it in your invoices and contracts.
Look at the design NASA is good Which in mid-June to mid-July conducted an audit to see if they meet different functional requirements and performance requirements. The space agency’s approval will allow the companies to continue to drive development The overall design of the ship.
NASA Signed a contract with Sierra to perform the “Ultimate Bursting Pressure Test” (UBP). With this money, they tested two prototype units—called Large Integrated Flexible Environment (LIFE) – at different levels of pressure, although its size was smaller than that of the “tropical reef” at the end. The last test took place a few weeks ago and LIFE has successfully weathered its stress levels ContainerBut, as you can see in the video above, it just exploded when the pressure kept increasing. Once in ‘Coral reefs“It’s been completed and installed in orbit, and presumably sometime in 2027, your customers will be able to reach it thanks to a supersonic space plane called”Dream catcherswhich evolves Sierra Space.
This will be the space plane Partially reusable – approximately 15 times – and will be able to carry 5440 kg of cargo or up to 12 passengers. Its small size allows it to land on any runway as a Boeing 747 or Airbus A380 can. Apart from being the official mode of transport for “Tropical Reefs,” a dream chaser She has a $3 billion contract with NASA to fly cargo and crew to the International Space Station.
In an interview with him Reporting by Rob, Tom Weiss, CEO of Sierra Space, confirmed that we are at the gates of the “tropical age,” a milestone that can be compared to the industrial revolution or the arrival of the Internet. First we have to get good at building trading economies in orbit low floorVice said. “Then we’ll travel to the lunar surface, 250,000 miles (over 400 km) away, before figuring out how to live on a planet 35 million miles (56 million km) away.”
