For most of us without a career with NASA, going to space is very expensive and difficult. Since it requires very advanced technology, living in space can be very challenging. However, living in space and space tourism isn’t entirely science fiction anymore and with enough oxygen, food, water and energy for crew and space visitors onboard, people can potentially live in space for smaller durations. Visitors to the Shamaxi Space Hotel would also have to pass a mandatory 7-day long training.
The Shamaxi Space Hotel concept by designer Tabriz Ahmadli draws its basic inspiration from the construction of the International Space Station which is 100 meters long and 80 meters wide, and houses between 6-24 crew members on board. Since a hotel would need more storage to provide enough food and water for crew and space visitors, the Shamaxi Space Hotel would need to be geared with less scientific equipment and more functional gear to suit guests’ needs. To cater to 30-35 visitors on board, the Space Hotel would also have at least 5 toilets, since each visitor cannot be given individual facilities.
Every capsule on the Shamaxi Space Hotel will be attached to the corridor and every space visitor will be given a private room or a private capsule. Every room and capsule will also have hidden handles and depending on capsules and room type, guests will be offered views of the Earth and sunset and sunrise. Instead of beds, every room will have sleeping bags though guests will be able to choose the interior trim for their room and capsule. Every room or capsule will also have two storage compartments for goods and emergency-related gadgets.
The interior of Shamaxi Space Hotel would be very luxurious and every room in the hotel will have 1 meter diameter windows with three range-topping rooms will have two one meter windows. Guests will be able to enjoy views of the Earth and the Moon and every room will have telescopes so guests can get a closer look at the unprecedented views of the Earth.
The living quarters of the Shamaxi Space Hotel would be called Shefaq and would have a large interior to provide greater view of the Earth and the Moon. The elegant and luxurious interior of the Shefaq wing would boast of hidden handles and LED light-infused large windows would provide an ethereal view to guests. Individual modules in the Shefaq wing would be called Papatya and each of these modules would be designed for up to two people. Papatya would feature up to 5 meter diameter space and it is perfect place to float around
The Shamaxi Space Hotel will feature a separate area for dining called the Dunya Restaurant. The restaurant will allow up to 7-8 people to eat together at a given time. The very spacious restaurant will also allow visitors to float around. The fabric-laden area will feature large windows and vintage satellite radios to make the journey from the capsules to the round table something of an exploration.
