China developing megastructures in spaceACE China is planning to build miles-wide ‘megastructures’ in orbit, including solar power plants, tourism complexes, gas stations and even asteroid mining facilities. The structures will require lightweight materials to allow larger objects to get into orbit with existing rockets. Researchers will also need to adopt technology to allow for inorbit assembly and control. The Chinese government said there is an ‘urgent need’ for megaprojects in space that would require ultra-large spacecraft to keep them in orbit. In terms of megastructures in space, the Voyager Station, expected to be operational in coming years, will be the first hotel in space built by California based Orbital Assembly Corporation. Decades after launching the first artificial satellite into orbit, Beijing is strengthening its foothold in space.
