The American company Orbital Assembly Corporation has announced the construction of a large hotel in orbit. What’s amazing, the first test element of the object is to be launched into space in less than 2 years. We are talking about a hotel here, because it will be truly luxurious with a diameter of 200 meters and simulated gravity conditions. The facility is to accommodate up to 400 people.
The company’s representatives announced that the first flights to the Voyager Space Station (VSS) are to take place in 2030. For now, engineers are working on special robots that will help make this idea come true. The robots are to be called Demonstrator Structural Truss Assembly Robot (DSTAR), and its task will be to assemble a special, 52-meter-long structural truss on the basis of which the hotel will be built.
The trip to the VSS and the 12-day stay there is expected to cost 9.5 million dollars. It may seem an astronomical amount, but now no ordinary person can fly freely into space because agencies don’t allow it. The American company ensures that there is no shortage of interested parties, so the whole game is worth the candle. According to the plan, the space hotel is to orbit the Earth every 90 minutes. Thanks to this, tourists will be able to observe as many as 16 sunrises and sunsets every day on Earth.
In order to be able to take advantage of the Orbital Assembly Corporation offer at all and look at the Blue Planet from the perspective from which a handful of Earthlings saw it, you need to be in good health, undergo a successful 3-month training, and have almost 10 million green free. From the information disclosed by the company, several hundred people are already willing, and at the moment the project is still in the early stage of implementation.
In the future, the company plans to open restaurants, cinemas, gyms, sports arenas, medical points, and even concerts for tourists. The flight to the space hotel will be carried out by special spacecraft. Most likely, these will be the Dream Chaser mini-shuttles from Sierra Nevada Corporation, which are expected to start performing missions for NASA next year. Dragon capsules from SpaceX are also available. Representatives of the Orbital Assembly Corporation are currently in talks with both companies.
