 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

    While i'd not be suprised to see the plans pushed back repeatedly in a similar manner to private ventures to Mars, space tourism is certainly something we will see in our lifetimes and a great thing. While out of reach for normal people, there are millions of people in the world who can afford a few hundred thousand for such profound experiences (indeed if i had the money i'd definitely go for a few days).

    Personally I think that this concept seems 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 )

    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.

    Just saw this thread and while its true that much of the space tourism is popular it can be made profitable for a few hundred thousand dollars per customer which means the market is large enough that there are enough rich who'd want to do it. This and low orbital flights are something that will take off during our lives even if largely the preserve of a few million wealthy people and firms.

    This space hotel must be opened in 2027. The question is how they are going to solve artificial gravity issue. The artificial gravity being an essential component of the end-design marketed here, there won't be any significant source of profits prior to its full achievement. This does not work in the Space industry where contingency is inherent to this market.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
