World’s First Space Hotel To Open In 2027

A California-based company, Gateway Foundation, has announced plans to construct the world’s first-ever space hotel billed to open in 2027.

The company first initiated the project, earlier named Von Braun Station, in 2012 and would later establish Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC) to execute the idea.

The hotel, now dubbed Voyager Station, will be made up of two concentric rings — one for docking and the second for serving as the backbone of the structure.

It will have a restaurant, bar, gym, cinema, spa, and rooms for around 400 people. Other features of the project will also include the capacity to produce varying levels of artificial gravity by increasing or decreasing the rate of rotation.

A former pilot who runs the OAC, John Blincow told CNN that the construction of the space hotel is expected to begin by 2026 after delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re trying to make the public realise that this golden age of space travel is just around the corner. It’s coming. It’s coming fast,” he said.

The company in a statement on its website said the project will leverage on technologies to give people a feel of when they are on earth.

“Voyager Station will leverage the technologies of Space and the comforts of Earth to create a unique experience unparalleled in history. Simulated gravity will offer amenities like toilet facilities, showers, and beds that function similar to what you are used to on Earth,” it said.
