The developers are Blue Origin and Sierra Space. Boeing and several other private companies, as well as the University of Arizona, have expressed a desire to join the work on the project. So the companies will join forces to create an alternative to the existing ISS. The new station will be able to receive 10 astronauts at a time. And it will be possible to use it not only for scientific, but also for commercial purposes, as well as for filming, etc.
The final budget of the project has not yet been approved, but it is known that more than $ 1.5 billion has been allocated for its implementation.
Construction is planned to begin in 2026, and the launch is scheduled for 2027.
