Voyager Station, the first ever space hotel is set to be operational by 2027

Orbital Assembly Corporation, the company behind the Voyager Station plans to behind construction by 2025

We are just a few years away from having an out-of-this-world hotel.

The current decade is going to witness the start and completion of construction on humanity’s first ever hotel in outer space, being built by Orbital Assembly. The company, which is 3 years old, plans to build the Voyager Station in low Earth orbit in 2025, and is looking to make the interstellar resort operational to visitors by 2027, as reported by The Daily Mail.

There are numerous renderings of the hotel available online; the designs are cosmic-chic, with individual life attached to a rotating wheel that has tubes connecting the different areas forming an X, similar to a wheel’s axle.

Guests won’t be going in just to enjoy the aesthetics – there’s going to be numerous onboard amenities such as themed restaurants, a health spa, a cinema, gyms, libraries, concert venues, Earth-viewing lounges and bars, and rooms to accommodate 400 people. A section of the spaceship will be reserved for crew quarters, air, water and power.

Looking for stakeholders

Orbital Assembly is also looking to sell portions of the hotel to permanent stakeholders, which includes government agencies looking to use it as a training centre or landlords who wish to create a villa onboard the spaceship.

The hotel will reportedly circle the globe every 90 minutes, and the circle’s rotation will be generating artificial gravity like that on the moon. The construction costs haven’t been revealed but you can expect it to be above $50 billion.

John Blincow, the founder of Gateway Foundation calls it “the next industrial revolution.” Blincow added that the rotation aspect is vital, and that without gravity, the people cannot be on a space station for a prolonged time. Orbital is also looking to make people stay onboard for more than one month.

The Voyager’s frame is set to be built by a robot called STAR (Structure Trust Assembly Robot) once the gravity-related testing is done.
