Everyone can't travel to space and gaze at the stars. Similarly, traveling to space and celebrating holidays appears to be a scenario from a science fiction film. However, work has already begun to make it a reality. After three years, people will vacation in space and stay in space hotels.
Space tourism has already begun; now it is a matter of staying and spending a few days there.
Recently, a company named Orbital Assembly Corp. has announced to build two space stations for tourists. These are two special stations - Pioneer Station and Voyager Station.
The Pioneer station will be operational by 2025 and can seat 28 people. The Voyager station, on the other hand, will be substantially greater in size. It was revealed in 2021. It has a capacity of 400 people and is scheduled to begin in 2027.
The company's objective is to build a 'Business Park,' which will house both offices and visitors. According to Tim Alatorre, COO of Orbital Assembly Corp (OAC), our objective is to make space a place that people want to visit; there will also be gravity.
OAC is constructing the world's first hybrid space station capable of both work and travel. They will also have artificial gravity, which will allow guests to work, move about, and play like they would on Earth. However, this technology is not yet accessible on space stations.
The future of these space hotels will be made up of multiple modules connected to the elevator shaft by a spinning wheel that circles the planet.
These space parks will be commercialized for the production of integrated circuits, photonics, fiber optics, satellite repair, military applications, biomaterials, organ growing, and medicines. In addition, the firm will serve as a communication center for space tourism.
According to Tim Alatorre, we envisage our Pioneer and Voyager space stations as ecotourism tourist sites.
