Apple went from a garage to a 'spaceship' in 40 years
40 years after Steve Jobs started Apple Computer in his parents garage, the company has reached new heights. Soon the building he dreamed of is ready.

The new building has been nicknamed the "spaceship" because it is shaped like a circle and resembles a giant UFO.

There, up to 12,000 employees will use 260,000 square meters to develop new computers, gadgets and services.

Former Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, met up in the Town Hall in Cupertino, California himself when the plans for the building were to be submitted to the city politicians in July 2011 - which was the last time he appeared publicly before he died that autumn.

- It's like a spaceship has landed. There is a wonderful garden in the middle. It is circular, so all surfaces are curved. It is not the cheapest way to build something. There is not a flat ugly glass throughout the building, Jobs said about the premises.

During the year, the building will be ready, and according to current Apple CEO, Tim Cook, the plan is to move the company into the "Spaceship" in 2017.
