Glimpses Of The Future

First Space Tourist Hotel Will Be In Orbit By 2030

 The International Space Station may have a wealth of private successors.

Blue Origin, Boeing, Sierra Space and several other partners has announced that they plan to build a commercial off-Earth outpost called Orbital Reef, which is scheduled to be up and running by the late 2020s.

Orbital Reef’s envisioned customers include national governments, private industry and space tourists, project team members said. The outpost will initially complement but eventually take the baton from the International Space Station(ISS), which is expected to be retired in the 2028 to 2030 timeframe.

“For over 60 years, NASA and other space agencies have developed orbital spaceflight and space habitation, setting us up for commercial business to take off in this decade,” Brent Sherwood, senior vice president of advanced development programs for Blue Origin, said in a statement today.

“We will expand access, lower the cost, and provide all the services and amenities needed to normalise spaceflight,” he added. “A vibrant business ecosystem will grow in low Earth orbit, generating new discoveries, new products, new entertainments and global awareness.”
