SPACE TRIP Amazon helping to build 'private space station' for HOLIDAYS above Earth

• by Tyler Baum

The company's computing division Amazon Web Services will provide logistical, communicative and information systems support to the developing space-hub, called Orbital Reef.

The Orbital Reef is slated to welcome space vacationers by 2030.

The idea is being carried out by titans of mechanical engineering and government contracting, including Blue Origin and Boeing.

Orbital Reef's latest partnership with AWS brings a trillion-dollar company into the fold.

In an AWS Public Sector Blog, the company wrote that Amazon will "share their expertise in logistics and end-to-end supply chain management to help Orbital Reef develop, launch, and scale reliable infrastructure."
