In 2027 we will have a space hotel!
The hotel’s name is Voyager Class space station, and it will be the first space hotel with a capacity to receive 400 guests.
Besides the hotel rooms, this hotel owns its bars, cinema, restaurants, and spa.
Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC) is the company building the hotel, and according to them, its construction will start in 2025. If they start in 2025 with the building, it is expected to be in function in 2027.
With the Voyager Station hotel, OAC strives on the colonization of space. They describe the station as ‘a rotating space station designed to produce varying levels of artificial gravity by increasing or decreasing the rotation rate.’
According to OAC:
‘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.”
We can say that the hotel has unique accommodation that will consist of two concentric structural rings bonded together from the latest information.
One ring will be inner, and the other one will be outer. The inner one should be a docking hub. The outer should be ”the backbone of the station and provide mounting for habitable modules, solar panels, radiators, and a rail transport system”, and there people will move freely.
Also, pods will be attacked to the outer ring, and they will have various purposes. A couple of them will take NASA for researchers, while the rest will serve as accommodation.
This project emerged when John Blincow founded The Gateway Foundation in 2012.
The Gateway Foundation’s primary purpose was to make the first spaceport. The website explained:
‘To do that, we must first build a few smaller structures. One of the most important projects is the Voyager Class of rotating space stations. This will likely be the first commercial space construction project in history.’
