The private company developing this radical "space hotel," the Gateway Foundation, has set a 2025 date for "the first spaceport," otherwise known as the Von Braun Rotating Space Station. The "space hotel" will hold scientists who will be conducting research on the interstellar vessel and tourists interested in an outerspace vacation.
According to the Gateway Foundation's website, "the Von Braun Station will be a rotating space station designed to produce varying levels of artificial gravity by increasing or decreasing the rate of rotation. The station will be designed from the start to accommodate both national space agencies conducting low gravity research and space tourists who want to experience life on a large space station with the comfort of low gravity and the feel of a nice hotel."
