The American company “Lockheed Martin” has indicated that the first private space station is likely to be established in the United States by 2027.
The site expected that Lockheed will cooperate with the American companies Nanoracks and Voyager Space and NASA in developing a project for the new station.
The station project was called Starlab (Star Lab). The purpose of the station is, according to the site, to conduct important scientific research, encourage production, and support the American manned presence in Earth’s orbit. The company is expected to announce the initial readiness of the plant by 2027.
The special orbital station is supposed to include an inhabited inflatable section, a docking unit, robots of various types, and a laboratory.
The station can accommodate 4 permanent residents. In addition, Starlab can host space tourists. The station can also participate in the realization of various special projects.
