The idea of creating a non-governmental Earth orbit space station “Mir-2” belongs to the Russian consortium “Space Technology”, which partners are investors from around the world, have joined forces to launch the implementation of programs of manned orbital complex “Mir-2”.
June 15, 2016 a meeting of the supervisory board of the consortium, “Space Technology”, which can be regarded as a landmark in international space exploration. During the meeting, it was approved by the “Mir-2” program of construction of the space station and confirmed funding for all phases of the program.
Create a space station “Mir-2” should be completed in 2032, when expected, manned complex to be fully assembled and will begin its full operation.
The meeting also approved the logo of a manned space station “Mir-2”.
The well-known Russian lawyer Maria Bast, a member of the supervisory board of the consortium, “Space Technology” was appointed the head of the construction of the space station “Mir-2”.

By decision of the Supervisory Board of the Consortium “Space Technology” published excerpts from the decision to approve the program. Also, information can be found on the website of the consortium “Space technology» http://kosmotech.org and a page about http://kosmotech.org/sample-page/ orbital program
The first phase of the program is the development and approval of the project the orbital station “Mir-2”, which will be implemented in the period from 2016 to 2020.
In the first phase of the non-state orbital station “Mir-2” the supervisory board of the consortium, “Space Technology” decided to hold a competition among the works of specialized professionals who want to take part in creating the concept of a future orbiting “Mir-2” station. As a specialized professionals can participate as individuals and organizations. According to the decision of the Supervisory Board in the competition, which begins on July 1, 2016 and will end on September 15, 2016, will be willing to take part from all over the world.
“Mir-2” First in October 2016 the results of the competition creating space station concept will be announced. The winner will be awarded a prize of $ 2000 US dollars, and the winner will be able to take a personal part in the drafting of the space station “Mir-2”. In case the winner consent to continue the work contract will be signed with him.
In the period from November 2016 to March 2017 it is planned to hold a competition among design organizations for the development of the project on the basis of the concept of winning. The competition is open to professional public and private planning organizations from all over the world.
April 15, 2017 announcement of the winner among design organizations, the signing of the contract for further work and the allocation of funding under the terms and conditions of the contract.
In the period from July 01, 2017 July 1, 2020 will be the drafting of the approved concept.
In the period from 2020 approval and certification of the project will be carried out until 2022 with the national public authorities and international organizations.
The second stage is planned the design and construction of the “Mir-2” modules of the space station
2.1. In the 2022 contest will be held among the enterprises and organizations engaged in the construction of space objects and equipment. According to the results of the contest winners will be announced and entered into on the contrasts of design and construction of various parts of the space station and the necessary equipment.
2.2. In the period from 2022 to 2027 it is planned to build the space station modules and the necessary equipment for the construction and maintenance of the space station.
2.3. In 2025, the contest is scheduled to send components, modules and equipment orbital station among public and private organizations involved in the delivery of cargo into space to orbit the Earth. Signing a contract with the organizations-winners for the delivery of cargo into orbit.
2.4. In 2025, the contest is scheduled to “Mir-2” assembly of the space station in space among the relevant public and private organizations, followed by the signing of a contract for further work with organizations-winners.
In the third stage of the program scheduled delivery of parts of the orbital station “Mir-2” and build on the Earth’s orbit within the period from 2027 and 2032, and the launch of full operation of the station.
3.1 2027 will be made the first delivery of parts and the space station modules.
3.2. Completion assembly of orbital station “Mir-2” and the start of operation of the plant.
