The world’s first space hotel to open in 2027
Work is due to start on the world’s first ‘space hotel’ in low Earth orbit in 2025 – and it will come equipped with restaurants, a cinema, spa and rooms for 400 people. Developed by the Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC), the Voyager Station could be operational as early as 2027, with the infrastructure built in orbit around the Earth. The space station will be a large circle and rotate to generate artificial gravity that will be set at a similar level to the gravity found on the surface of the Moon. It will feature a series of pods attached to the outside of the rotating ring and some of these pods could be sold to the likes of NASA and ESA for space research, according to Daily Mail.
A stay in space will offer a low-gravity gymnasium and private spacewalks, but it won’t come cheap. Orbital estimates that recreational space travelers will have to have a net worth of nearly $50 million. To raise capital for its work, the company was selling shares at $0.25 in an effort to raise at least $10,000 by April 1. It has already met its maximum goal of $1 million, according to its page on Netcapital, a crowdfunding investment platform for private companies. Orbital says it already has a team of NASA alumni, scientists, pilots and engineers, as well as patents for space construction equipment, FOX Business wrote.
“The station will be designed from the start to accommodate both national space agencies conducting low gravity research and space tourists who want to experience life on a large space station with the comfort of low gravity and the feel of a nice hotel,” according to the OAC website. The general structure of the space station will be two concentric rings, with the inner one a dedicated docking hub, and the outer ring “the backbone of the station”, providing “mounting for habitable modules, solar panels, radiators, and a rail transport system,” The Independent reported.
