Space hotels are coming

Space hotels are coming

By 2021 we’ll be able to book reservations at Robert Bigelow’s space hotel.
Founded in 1999, Bigelow Space Operations is currently building 2 x 55 foot space stations – the B330-1 and B330-2, which would be twice the capacity of the International Space Station when linked.

The current renders personal quarters, storage areas, and a gym amongst other essentials.
There’s no word on where the staff will live so not exactly sure how the domestic side of things will work.

In 2016 BSO managed to attach an inflatable ‘hotel’ extension to the International Space Station – the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM), and is set for a two-year mission to test durability. The company is also working with United Launch Alliance (ULA) on a low orbit inflatable habitat for launch in 2022.
