Construction may begin in 2026. Currently, an environmental review is underway at the designated sites.

A $2 billion space center will be built in Silicon Valley. Scientists have been working on its creation for more than 20 years. The construction plans were announced by the University of Berkeley in California and a branch of NASA called the Ames Research Center, Space reports.

Construction could begin in 2026 after the successful completion of an environmental review.

The Berkeley Space Center is set to become an epicenter for developments in fields ranging from space robotics and planetary science to automated aviation.

It will also serve as a training ground for the next generation of space professionals, from engineers and researchers to business leaders in the space industry.

The University of California plans to occupy approximately 10% of the office space and research facilities of the new 130 thousand m2 center.

The collaboration between the University of California and NASA Ames at the Berkeley Space Center has been ongoing for more than two decades.

At the space center, private companies can work alongside UC Berkeley faculty and students, as well as researchers from the space agency.

NASA has signed a contract with the private American company TransAstra for $850,000 to develop a bag for removing space debris from Earth orbit.

It was previously reported that the James Webb Telescope showed an image of the spiral galaxy M51, known as the Vortex.
