(Pocket-lint) – Jeff Bezos isn’t just in a space phase, in case anyone is wondering – he’s all in space. This was demonstrated once again by a new announcement from Blue Origin, which confirmed its intention to build and operate its own space station over the next decade.
Blue Origin optimistically describes it as being like a village, where multiple businesses can coexist and pursue their own ends in different parts of the resort. In one of these parts, there will indeed be the possibility for mega-rich tourists to soak up the view.
It might sound ambitious, but Blue Origin is advancing at a crazy pace right now, and it reckons it will have up to 10 people staying at the resort by the second half of this decade, which really isn’t that far away at all.
The announcement states that Orbital Reef will not only allow new research opportunities, but also “open up new markets in space,” which is a powerful capitalist way of looking beyond, but can hardly be a surprise given the worldview. established and implication of Bezos. .
