Vacation in orbit: 1st space hotel slated to open in 2027

11 16 2

While many people would be grateful just to leave the house during the pandemic, one company has announced plans for a hotel that is a little further afield — in space.

The world’s first space hotel is slated to open in 2027 and will be able to accommodate up to 400 guests.

According to the plans from the Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC), the hotel will have many of the facilities guests would expect at any luxury hotel, including restaurants, a movie theater and a spa, with added extras not usually needed, such as Earth-viewing lounges.

The hotel will be built in the shape of a large ring with small pods attached to its exterior, and will rotate to generate artificial gravity.
