Construction of world’s first space hotel to begin in 2026 [VIDEO]
Space station will have the capacity to accommodate 400 people and is expected to be operational by 2027.
A space construction company named Orbital Assembly has announced that it would construct a ‘space hotel.’ The statement was made in an event, ‘First Assembly,’ that streamed live on the company’s YouTube channel.
Speaking to a news outlet, the Chief Executive Officer of Orbital Assembly, John Blincow, said that the COVID-19 pandemic might delay the construction from its initial 2025 projection. However, Blincow believes that it could take just a year or two to construct Voyager Station, the commercial space station that will house the hotel.
“It is going to happen fast when it starts,” John said.
He added, “You are going to have the top chefs making good food. Moreover, when you pay $5 million to go someplace, it’s not going to be burgers and fries.”
Voyager Station has been planned to operate with artificial gravity. Orbital Assembly’s goal is “to build a ring-shaped Voyager Space Station with a diameter of 650 ft and capable of creating moon-levels of artificial gravity.”
According to details, the space station will have the capacity to accommodate 400 people and is expected to be operational by 2027.
