The First Private Space station «MIR-2» will appear to 2032 in Earth’s orbit.
The idea of creating First Private Space station “MIR-2” belongs to the Russian consortium “Space Technologies”, which combined the partners and investors from all over the world have joined their forces to launch the implementation of programs of manned orbital complex “MIR-2”.
15 June 2016 a meeting of the supervisory board of the consortium “Space Technologies”, which can be regarded as a landmark in international space exploration. During the meeting was approved the plan of construction of the space station “MIR-2” program and the supervisory board confirmed funding for all phases of the program.
The creation of the private space station “MIR-2” will be completed in 2032: the members of consortium consider, the manned orbital complex to be fully assembled and will begin its full operation.

The famous Russian lawyer Maria Bast, the member of the supervisory board of the consortium “Space Technologies” was appointed the head of the construction of the space station “MIR-2”.
By decision of the supervisory board of the consortium “Space Technologies” we publish the excerpts from the decision to approve the program. Also, more information you may found on the website of the consortium “Space technologies» http://kosmotech.org.
The first phase of the program is the development and approval of the project of the orbital station “MIR-2”, which will be implemented in the period from 2016 to 2020.
At the first phase of the construction of the manned orbital station “MIR-2” the supervisory board of the consortium “Space Technologies” decided to hold a contest among the specialized professionals who want to take part in creating of the concept of the “MIR-2”.
