For the traveller who really and truly wants to get away from it all, a new kind of hotel could just offer the perfect solution.
The world’s very first space hotel is slated to open in 2027.
Named the Voyager Class space station, the hotel will be able to hold up to 400 guests.
But those guests won’t be slumming it – alongside bedrooms, there will be bars, restaurants and even a gym according to plans for the ambitious project.
Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC) is the company behind the idea, and has announced that construction on the Voyager Class will begin in 2025.
“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.
Microgravity is not working for humans. That's why Orbital Assembly Corp. (OAC) will build the Voyager Station, a large habitat spun for artificial gravity.
