Behold: Voyager Station – the solar system’s first space hotel, due to open in 2026. Along with one-sixth earth gravity suites, villas, restaurant, bar, gym, and an entertainment venue, the resort will offer spacewalks, low-grav basketball and a zero-g experience at the central docking hub.

Voyager Station will be constructed by robots in orbit and fitted with 44 autonomous “emergency return vehicles” for safe evacuation should something untoward happen.

Currently accepting reservations for a TripAdvisor-bothering €4,200,000 per three-day excursion.
