The World’s First Space Hotel to be fully functional by 2025. The futuristic space hotel will be an orbiting space station and will give tourists a spectacular view of the home planet Earth.
It has been designed in a 190-meter-diameter wheel shape. The wheel is intended to rotate to that it produces a similar gravitational force that is felt on the moon.
The hotel called the Von Braun Space Station has been designed by The Gateway Foundation. It will accommodate 400 guests and will feature leisure facilities including restaurants, bars, kitchens, toilets, cinema and also educational seminars.
The hotel would be build upon technology which is used in the International Space Station (ISS), but instead of being used for scientific reasons, it would act as an orbiting cruise ship with luxury accommodation and cocktail bars.
Also, unlike the ISS, the hotel will have artificial gravity so that the guests can walk around like they normally do on Earth, instead of flying, making the stay feasible and comfortable.
Gateway Foundation’s designer Tim Alatorre told, “Because the overall costs are still so high most people assume that space tourism will only be available to the super rich, and while I think this will be true for the next several years, the Gateway Foundation has a goal of making space travel open to everyone.”
