Milner’s interest in space exploration led him to start a company called the International Investment Fund (IIF). The first significant project for IIF was investigating the possibility of creating a private space station. Milner began this company to help explore space. The main reason for starting this company was because Milner wanted an alternative to the International Space Station program that the US government was funding.

The Eureka Manifesto has been very helpful for many people who need motivation and inspiration. Yuri Milner is most famous for his role in the space exploration industry, especially in creating the “Eureka” project. This $100 million project was designed to encourage private investors to send machines into space.
