Spaceports’ locations must not be near any populated areas and the trajectory of the ships is studied not to be launched over any populated areas; that’s why it’s recommended to be near water bodies (oceans and seas).

Private spaceflight businesses require large spaceports with many launch pads and services to accommodate travelers as the space tourism sector grows. To cope with the coming future of space tourism, the sector requires new types of vision, projects and buildings.

The UFO building was designed to resemble a spaceship, with a diameter of roughly 1.5 kilometers and a height of up to 305 meters. The first ever commercial desert spaceport will include anti-gravity arenas, digital space museum, observatory, planetarium, astronomy research center, space education academy, space fashion events hall, sports arena, digital theater, space entertainment center, hotels, residential and recreational centers.


The UAE’s interest in space dates back to the 1970s, when US space agency Nasa paid a visit to Sheikh Zayed. The government did not decide to create its own space agency until 2014.

A UAE space law was introduced today in order to provide the right environment for investment and to coordinate with the UK Space Agency on the development of space ports.

With intergalactic space and its occupants, if they exist, we appeal for peace, love, and humanity, and we greet and welcome them. On the planet Earth, desert cities are developing toward multiple journeys to outer space and receiving its visitors. Imagine if the voyage is reversed, any of the UFO spacecraft and their inhabitants would be invited to visit the Earth, and the rest is history.

The city’s purpose is to take the elements of the city on a journey beyond time and space to realize the limitless depths of the universe from deep within the desert of planet Earth.

We must ensure that future technological progress is contained while also delivering a message of love and peace to the universe in all of its forms through such cities.


The desert is an expansive land of loneliness and emptiness that embodies how humans can feel alone. Alone in an empty vast universe in the light of our sun and in our home. Through this vastness we will unite, we will seek each other and meet.  We must endure this loneliness and vastness. We will populate the emptiness of the desert and together we will embark to populate the emptiness of our universe. We have to explore our yellow desert; we have to populate our yellow desert. And hence is the exploration of our colored universe. Let’s meet and join each other. “From the desert then the Universe”
