Vacation in Space? Space hotel in the works

Top Stories

You may soon be able to plan a vacation in space.

The Gateway Foundation released the design for its space hotel this week. It looks like a rotating wheel and includes 24 modules that orbit earth. The wheel’s rotation would create a simulated gravity.

The hotel design is named for Wernher von Braun. The foundation hopes to get the hotel off the ground by 2025, which could make it fully operational by 2027.
