Apple is one of the most innovative and powerful names in tech, in fact they're one of the most powerful names in business in general.
They're either despised by those who are anti-Apple, or adored by their dedicated and loyal fan base. However what their building now is eerily reminiscent of a space-base, or possibly, a spaceship.

That's what engineers and construction workers are calling the $5 billion Apple Park, which has both an outdoor atrium, inside office space, and the new underground, 1,000 seated Steve Jobs Theater.
The latest video from drone videographer Matthew Roberts showed the massive facility in full detail.

These images, credited to Maverick Media, display the massive “spaceship” facility from an aerial viewpoint.

Many construction workers on the ground also agree the facility resembles what they'd depict as a spaceship, but it will be a state of the art park.

It's intending to include an outdoor atrium with lush greenery that spans several football fields. It will also eventually house a massive fountain in the center.

It will have underground tunnels leading to the most amazing theater that an architect could possibly design.

It remains to be seen if Apple will begin using this facility to launch new products, since it can house so many spectators, but as of now that's the rumor in the tech circuit.

Regardless if you're an Apple fan or not, this is one astronomical feat of American engineering and architecture that deserves praise for it's design.

What are the chances it will lift off into space? Slim to none, but we can dream, can't we?
