Vietnam is the most suitable choice for creating a space port

A few years ago, a group of scientists came up with a justification for the feasibility of building an international space center in the Asia-Pacific region in order to achieve advanced innovative development of space activities. At the same time, Vietnam was recognized as the main and most acceptable, from all points of view, location for the construction of such an object, whose residents want not only to wait for the XSMB, xo so mien bac, but also to start studying astronomy from school. All this will help to bring to the country the development of space activities in cooperation with other countries.

This event would make it possible to bring Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, to the forefront of world development, while bringing serious income.

Moreover, the world's leading experts in the space industry today attach great importance to the financial return from space. Space exploration ceases to be a purely costly item of expenditure for humanity, becoming an advanced method of payback. For this reason, businessmen have been actively promoting their near-space projects recently.
