The plans for a new space hotel set to open in 2025 have been revealed. The United States-based space company Orbital Assembly has revealed two new projects which will see business people and tourists alike take to space.
The company hopes to launch two separate space stations; the Voyager Station, which is set to open in 2027, and the Pioneer Station, which could be open in 2025.
Although most details about the Pioneer Station have been kept under the wraps, they’ve stated it will be ‘the first habitable platform capable of providing artificial gravity, unlocking unprecedented opportunities for research, tourism, and long-duration spaceflight,’ on its website, Orbital Assembly explains how the Voyager Station will ‘leverage the technologies of Space and the comforts of Earth to create a unique experience unparalleled in history.’
The Voyager station offers, “Simulated gravity will offer amenities like toilet facilities, showers, and beds that function similar to what you are used to on Earth.”
Orbital Assembly also points out how trips to space ‘cost millions of dollars,’ however, the company doesn’t hint at how much a stay at either station.
The Pioneer Station will be open to researchers, business people and tourists, with a capacity of 28 people while the Voyager Station has the capacity to accommodate up to 400 people at one time.
In the Voyager Station, there are ‘luxury suites’ which can be rented for a week, month or bought as a holiday home.
“Our luxury villas are anticipated to be up to 500 m2 (5,300 sf). They will feature cooking facilities, up to three bathrooms, and sleeping accommodations for up to 16 people,” the website reads.
There are also hotel suites for shorter stays and if travelling alone or in a pair.
