The first space hotel, scheduled to open in 2027 (Video)
The famous slogan "The sky is the limit" will take on a new meaning starting in 2027, when the first suborbital space hotel is scheduled to open. In other words, "space" will be the limit.
For those who want to explore something else, not just earthly destinations, Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC) has announced the construction of the world's first space hotel. According to the plan, its construction will begin in 2025, and in 2027 it will be inaugurated.
For now, it's a bold idea, but one that urges us to dream of the day when we can travel at high altitude just to enjoy amazing views of the Earth and the galaxy.
The hotel will be christened the Voyager Class Space Station and will be able to accommodate up to 400 guests. They will not get bored, although there will not be too many sights to visit, but there will be a gym and sports, there will be restaurants and bars. There will probably be entertainment and entertainment venues.
"The station will be designed from the beginning to host national space agencies that conduct low-gravity research, but also tourists eager to go into space and who want to experience life on a large space station, with the comfort of low gravity and the feeling of a beautiful hotel.", According to the OAC Website.

The general structure of the station will consist of 2 concentric rings. A ring will be positioned centrally inside, used as a docking hub, and a ring will be outside, representing the "backbone" of the station. Solar panels, radiators and living modules can be mounted on the outer ring. There will also be a transport system on the station.
The rotating space station will also be designed to "produce varying levels of artificial gravity by increasing or decreasing the rate of rotation."
We could say that those from Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC) watched too many SFs with space exploration or we can say that movies are becoming a reality. It remains to be seen how much it will materialize from the beautiful dream of traveling in space as a tourist.
