World’s First Space Hotel Could Open in 2027

DM

Some time ago, we brought you the story of Spaceport City, the planned, floating commercial space station in Japan. But as is usual with these things, someone is already taking things a step further. Orbital Assembly Corporation, a California-based futuristic construction company, is planning the world’s first space hotel. According to the firm’s ambitious plans, the commercial space station could open as soon as 2027. Titled the Voyager Station, the hotel’s Star Trek-ish name promises to boldly take travelers to where no tourist has vacationed before. The planned space station lives up to its science fiction-inspired name even in its looks. The circular space station resembles a giant wheel. To provide artificial gravity for its guests, Voyager will slowly rotate around itself. “Voyager Station is a rotating space station designed to produce varying levels of artificial gravity by increasing or decreasing the rate of rotation,” the project’s official website reads.
