World’s First-ever Space Hotel

News

Orbital Assembly Corporation, a space construction company, recently unveiled its plans to build a hotel in Earth’s atmosphere. The company plans to start building a 400-room hotel in 2025, which will be called Voyager Station. It is expected to be operational by 2027.

The space hotel, which will be spread over 11,600 sq mt, will have 44 emergency return vehicles (ERVs) with automated flight controls for autonomous landing. The hotel will also have features such as luxury villas, hotel suites, a restaurant and a gym. The hotel will be synchronised to a fixed position relative to the sun. This will reduce thermal stress and give room for continuous solar power generation.
