Holidays in space may be closer than you think


Given mankind cannot conquer traffic congestion or buses that turn up all in a row, a holiday in space may seem a far-fetched proposition.

An American tech company, however, says it hopes to deliver a cruise-like space experience before the end of this decade, EuroNews reports.

The Gateway Foundation's ‘Voyager’ space station is currently in development, with the goal being to provide rooms for up to 400 people.

Its circular spinning frame should allow the structure to emulate an artificial gravity level similar to Mars - 40% of Earth's own.

The project aims to provide an assortment of cruise ship-like opportunities to eat, relax and work, including a health spa, cinemas, and bars.

The space hotel will have the capacity to circumnavigate the planet in just 90 minutes if all goes well.

The logistics will be devised by Orbital Assembly, a space construction company. They have developed the Structure Trust Assembly Robot (STAR), which will build the hotel in-orbit upon completion of successful gravity testing.

“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,” the OAC website says.

A date is set to begin construction in 2025, with the expectation that the hotel will be fully operational by 2027.

The works are modelled from ideas first created by groundbreaking rocket scientist Wehrner von Braun, late Nazi rocket scientist who was a key figure in NASA’s Apollo space program.

“This will be the next industrial revolution" says Gateway Foundation founder John Blincow.
