To infinity and beyond! Orbital Assembly Corporation are announcing plans to begin building the world’s first ever SPACE HOTEL in 2025. This California-based startup is hoping to open by 2027. It is set to be located inside of the “Voyager Station.”
This is a space station which will feature restaurants, movie theaters, spas and rooms for up to 400 guests.
“This is a sun-synchronous polar orbit that will reduce thermal stress and allow for almost continuous solar power generation. there, orbit degradation and space debris risk will be nominal,” said Orbital Assembly on a Twitter post.
Self-proclaimed as the world’s first large-scale construction company, orbital assembly says that the voyager station will feature more than 11,600 m2 (125,000 sf) of habitable space in modules and access tubes.
24 modules have been allocated as habitation, each measuring 36 ft in diameter and 65 ft long. Each module offers a total approximately 1600 square feet habitable surface spread over 3 floors. At least 12 modules will be dedicated to hotel rooms and suits. There will be luxury suites, luxury rooms and standard rooms. The maximum station occupancy is from 316 to 440 people, depending on the final module configuration.
“With voyager station we don’t want to have to develop any new technologies, we want it to be technologies that are already in hand, it’s just that we are applying them in new ways to get a structure and a facility like that,” said Tom Spilker, CTO of Orbital Assembly.
