I`ve bumped into some interesting article and I wanna share it with you and hear your thoughts about that project. The world`s first space hotel is slated to open in 2027 . Orbital Assembly Corporation, the group behind Voyager Station, has announced plans to begin building the hotel in low Earth orbit in 2025. The hotel will be able to accomodate 400 people and it will have a cinema, gyms, health spa, reastaurants, libraries and more stuff https://hypebeast.com/2021/3/orbital-assembly-corporation-voyager-station-expected-2027-opening-announcement?utm_source=instagram&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=ig_bio

@bearnard45,
Interesting concept, but don't invest in it. Still, if it was successful and around for a while, I'd consider a visit.

How much it cost to have all that stuff that I can get right here in town? I mean, what's the advantage of having all that in low orbit?

@roger,
If I were in a space hotel, I wouldn't be watching movies.

@engineer,
It seems to me that this project is rather interesting. But there are some scientific problems that are needed to be solved before this project starts building. Also, as for me I don`t see any necessity of this space hotel. Just imagine how much it would cost to build it. I assume we have more important stuff in space exploration. ( not taking into consideration issues we have on Earth )

@roger,
In addition to my answer above, I wanna say that I am not the specialist in the area of building such things but still I assume that it`s rather expensive thing to build and as for me it`s completely needless and useless. On the Earth`s orbit we already have a lot of space junk which became the issue for space companies. This project is not important in space exploration area.

@roger,
You’re not interested in the thrill of using a zero G lavatory then?

@izzythepush,
You mean, the novelty of not having to calculate trajectory?

All of that stuff at zero-g with an incredible view.

That would be worth a few million dollars to me (assuming that when they sell tickets I have an extra few million lying around).

I have read that zero g sex isn't as great as it sounds at first. Apparently you have the problem of Newton's third law... each thrust pushes you apart.

That doesn't mean I wouldn't want to try it.

@bearnard45,
You sitting at a digital computer connected to a global internet that took billions of dollars to build and cause all sorts of needless "junk" to complain about this...

You see my point? Cars, televisions, indoor plumbing... why do we need anything?

@maxdancona,
All stuff you've mentioned is a part of our everyday life and we cannot imagine our daily routine without them so I thin people really need it) But I don`t consider space hotel as a must have thing
