In the world that we're living in at the moment, all of us could do with a wee trip to space right about now... By 2027, this could actually be a reality!

Yup, there are actual plans for the first ever space hotel to open up in 2027, named the Voyager Class Space Station.

The hotel will be able to hold up to 400 guests, and plans are underway for the construction to start in 2025.

Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC) are the brains behind the hotel. On their website, they said:

"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"

Apparently the hotel will have a gym, bar and restuarants too. Check out the image up top for what it's gonna look like.

How cool would being a "space tourist" be!?!
