Have you ever planned of going out for holidays to spend time with your loved ones and that too in different places with different place experience. There are many people who are still dreaming of going to space just to spend time and for experience now the dream is going to be fulfilled.
The hotel will have almost all the amenities that are available on Earth, except the swimming pool might be because of it’s maintenance, but the weightlessness in space is a much better experience than you can feel ever.
The Von Braun Station is designed by the Gateway Foundation and it is a commercial hotel that will be able to accommodate or serve around 400 people. The commercial hotel project is expected to be ready by 2025 with completely operational kitchens, restaurants and cinema halls. The hotel is designed around two ring structures that will allow the outer ring to rotate around the inner ring to create artificial gravity that is similar to what will be experienced on the Moon. The technology used is similar to what is used on the International Space Station, but on the Von Braun the artificial gravity will allow guests to walk around normally. It will make it feasible for staff or guests to live on the space station for a long duration comfortably.
The diameter of outer ring is 190 meter that will contain 24 modules that will have all the accommodation facilities. Some rooms will be a permanent residence, while some will be rented out to space agencies. The rest of the rooms will be available for space tourists to spend a couple of days on the ultimate cruise that will be traversing in the cosmos. The company has expected for about 100 guests to visit the space hotel every week. It might be expensive for people but the company claims that eventually it will affordable like any other holiday to Disneyland or a tropical cruise.
The space hotel is expected to be launch and starts running by 2025 and might deliver the space holiday experience that has been talked about for some years now. This is not the first commercial space project that has been undertaken but it might become the first successful one.
