Vacationing in space could become a reality in 2027 with a hotel that could exist above the Earth’s atmosphere.
The futuristic hotel concept named Voyager Station will consist of 24 modules that would connect through elevator shafts to orbit the earth, reports CNN. The Gateway Foundation first revealed the plan to build a hotel in space in 2019. At the time it was named the Von Braun Station.
Now, the Orbital Assembly Corporation headed by John Blincow, who is also one of the heads at the Gateway foundation, is working on the blueprint to build the futuristic structure.
While talking to CNN, Blincow said some plans were postponed due to the pandemic, however the hotel’s construction work is set to begin in 2026, and could be a reality in space by 2027.
“We’re trying to make the public realize that this golden age of space travel is just around the corner. It’s coming. It’s coming fast,” he added.
