World’s First Space Hotel to Open in 2027

Thinking of taking a vacation that’s out of this world? Orbital Assembly Corporation, a new construction company run by former pilot John Blincow, is planning to open a luxury space hotel by 2027. 

The hotel, dubbed ‘Voyager Station’, would accommodate 280 guests and 112 crew members while aiming to be the first commercial space hotel upon completion.

In a recent interview with CNN, Blincow explained there had been some Covid-related delays, but construction on the space hotel is expected to begin in 2026, and holidaying in space could be a reality 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,” said Blincow.

Although the suites and showers will be similar to ones you see here on Earth, the team plans to plate traditional ‘space food’ such as freeze dried ice cream in the hotel’s restaurant. There are also plans for recreational activities such as basketball games where participants can soar higher due to the weightlessness of the environment. 

For now, the space hotel isn’t advertising a room rate, but expect it to come with a hefty price tag attached.
