Plans for new cruise ship-style space hotel released

By  | 

Looking for a new place to vacation to?

Why not outer space?

The Gateway Foundation released the design for its space hotel this week!

The design looks like a rotating wheel and includes 24 modules which orbit Earth. The wheel's rotation would create a simulated gravity.

The hotel design is named for Wernher von Braun.

Wernher von Braun was an aerospace engineer who pioneered rocket technology in Germany and the United States. His name could become controversial as he worked with the Nazi party for a time.

Projections show the hotel getting off the ground by 2025 with the hotel being fully operational by 2027.
