DESIGNS for the ‘first space hotel’ have been revealed and it’s as weird and futuristic as you would expect.
The orbiting space station is designed to accommodate 400 guests and has facilities that you find in top hotels such as restaurants, bars and a cinema.

The commercial space hotel has been designed by The Gateway Foundation.
It has called the creation the Von Braun Space Station and has plans for it to build upon technology that is already used in the International Space Station (ISS).
However, instead of being used for scientific purposes, it would be more like an orbiting cruise ship with luxury accommodation and cocktail bars.
The designers also think there will be space for educational seminars in the hotel though.

Unlike the ISS, the aim is for the space hotel to have artificial gravity so guests can walk around as normal.
This would make staying there long term more feasible and short stays much more comfortable.
The hotel has been designed in a 190-metre-diameter wheel shape.
The plan is for this wheel to rotate so it creates a similar gravitational force to the one that is felt on the Moon.
It will house 24 individual pods with sleeping accommodation inside.

These rooms will be decorated with soft furnishings and warm homely colours.
The Gateway Foundation hopes to have its space station hotel up and running by 2025.

It hopes that 100 tourists will visit the floating holiday resort each week.
Once the Von Braun Space Station is up and running, the Gateway Foundation then plans to build an even bigger space hotel that could accommodate up to 1,400 people.

In other news, a strange ‘shiny gel’ has been found on the far side of the Moon by a Chinese probe.
A bonkers lift from Earth to the Moon has been proposed by scientists in a mad bid to cut the cost of space travel.
And, Nasa’s chief wants Pluto to be classified as a planet again.
