Do you ever find yourself needing space to get away from your life? By 2027, physicians and architects hope to have a hotel called the Von Braun Station up and running for travel in space. In order to simulate gravity, senior design architect Tim Alatorre established a rotating wheel with 24 modules, set to orbit Earth. “Near the center of the station there's no artificial gravity,” Alatorre says. “But as you move down the outside of the station, the feeling of gravity increases.” Advanced, modern equipment such as: new metal alloys, carbon composites, 3D printing and launch pad technology have made the possibility of this invention more probable in our current era. Opposing Von Braun, there is also another station in the process of inventing a space hotel called Aurora Station. This, on the other hand, is predicted to set launch in 2022, five years before the Von Braun. However, the Aurora Station is hoping to aim for 12 passengers while the Von Braun Station would sleep 342 people with a maximum capacity of 450. “We're going to have a number of different recreation activities and games that'll highlight the fact that you're able to do things that you can't do on Earth," Altorre boasts. “Because of the weightlessness and the reduced gravity, you'll be able to jump higher, be able to lift things, be able to run in ways that you can't on Earth.”
