Station (suggestion only)


Explanation:
I personally have not been able to find the term in my dictionaries, and assume its a sort new made-up one, considering the context, in which case to translate it as simply 'station', or 'station-complex' seem fine to me.

space station


Explanation:
I don't think the complex is really necessary in the translation, it probably refers to the idea of the current thing they are putting together up there ISS or whatever it is called, hence the Komplex, but I am not sure how the US media are covering it

space station


Explanation:
I agree with Mike's answer. Actually if it's called ISS - maybe it's called an "Interplanetary Space Station"?

space station complex for interplanetary missions


Explanation:
After all, the word 'Komplex' isn't there by mishap. It indicates that there is more than ONE space station, so I would reject the 'space station' suggestions
