What is the most extravagant vacation you can think of? An aerial view of the Swiss Alps or a private island booked just for you where you look at the sunsets and moon in peace? If you have around $5 million just lying around, you can go on the most extravagant vacation in the history of humankind yet — a journey to the stars.
The 400-room space hotel called Voyager Station was announced earlier and now the company has released details about probable cost and itinerary for future space tourists.
Led by Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC), the space-hotel is expected to be operational by 2027! This will be our world’s (our in case some other universe already has it) first-ever commercial space station. The company, whose welcome logo on their website is “we provide gravity”, is aiming to mix “business with pleasure.”
The space station, or space resort, can change the levels of gravity via altering rates of rotation,the company was quoted by BBC.
But there’s the cost, of course. As of now, only billionaires can think of going on this luxury trip by spending around $5 million (INR 36,42,46,750) for only a 3 ½ day-long trip. Even though the sum sounds hefty, it is grandly cheaper than the current price a civilian has to pay to visit the Space Station. You will need $55 million (INR 4,00,83,09,250) to book a seat on Elon Musk’s SpaceX flight to the International Space Station, and you won’t even get a spa.
The Voyager Station will be equipped with all the facilities and luxuriesyou can expect from a 5-star hotel on Earth; including gym, spa, gourmet food, comfortable rooms and washrooms — and a “world tour” right outside your window.Maybe, the worlds of science fiction pioneers like Arthur C. Clarke or Isaac Asimov will become a reality someday and even regular, non-billionaire residents of Earth could spend their vacations on the Moon, Mars, or Space Hotels like Voyager.
