NASA has provided lists of companies that will build private orbital stations in the future.

Now NASA is developing concepts for future orbital space stations that will come

to replace the ISS. It is planned that the American segment of the station will stop its work in 2024.

The NASA message states that the orbitalstations in the future will be private. Possible developers include major technology corporations Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Blue Origin, as well as small startups Maxar Technologies or KBRWyle. Also on the list are unexpected applicants like McKinsey & Company - the world's leading consulting corporation.

  • Axiom Space, Inc. of Houston.
  • Blue Origin, LLC, of ​​Kent, Washington.
  • The Boeing Company of Houston.
  • Deloitte Consulting of Manhattan Beach, California.
  • KBRWyle of Houston.
  • Lockheed Martin Corporation of Littleton, Colorado.
  • McKinsey & Company, Inc. of Washington, D.C.
  • NanoRacks, LLC, of ​​Webster, Texas.
  • Northrop Grumman of Dulles, Virginia.
  • Sierra Nevada Corporation of Louisville, Colorado.
  • Space Adventures, Inc., of Vienna, Virginia.
  • Maxar Technologies, formerly SSL, Inc., of Palo Alto, California.


The US authorities are not going to pay forthe content of its segment on the ISS, so we decided to transfer this market into private hands. Now the business is already developing programs for private experiments in space, shooting films, organizing events, assembling huge spacecraft.

Many experts believe that without supportState private companies can not yet really use orbital stations. Due to the high cost of launches in the coming years, this will be simply unprofitable.
