An Inflatable Space Hotel Could Launch By 2021


An inflatable space hotel could launch by 2021, Billionaire Robert Bigelow, Bigelow Aerospace founder and owner of a chain of cheap hotels Budget Suites, announced. Tourists want an incredible holiday could very soon stay in a hotel in space.


Billionaire Robert Bigelow has created this idea in 1999 along with his private company Bigelow Aerospace as a research laboratory. This inflatable hotel will orbit Earth’s orbit by becoming part of the new space station in 2022.

He has been designing two models of spacecraft stroke hotel, the B330-1, and B330-2 which are the first airborne products of his Bigelow Airspace operation. Bigelow said that the company would manage the operation of the crafts into space.

Two 17-meter modules can run as a low earth orbit or in outer space or in orbit of the moon. Both crafts will link together to create one larger inflatable space hotel.

According to a report, hotel’s guests will able to see “16 sunrises and sunsets,” as a space hotel will move at some speed that it would circle the earth every 90 minutes. In 2016, Bigelow sent an inflatable section to attach to the International Space Station to test these modules.

The company explained in a statement, “These single structures that house humans on a permanent basis will be the largest, most complex structures ever known as stations for human use in space.”

The company also said that it will build an inflatable module for a lunar orbit that will work as a “lunar storage.”
