It is the establishment of a mini space station in low earth orbit (LEO) for private passengers, the first space hotel. It is conceived as a non-permanently occupied shelter for tourists and the crew periodically.
The initial phase will involve the development of 2 modules, with a bioinspired design, for 2 passengers and 1 crewmember. In the second phase, for a total of 4 passengers and 2 crew members, the station will be extended to 5 modules: 3 room modules, 1 service module and 1 multiservice module, toilet and spa. All modules will have artificial atmosphere, thermal control and solar collection control systems for the generation of electricity.
The hotel will be located in a low Earth orbit, at an altitude of 450 kilometres, where it is still under the protection from the radiation provided by the Van Allen Belts, and permits faster access and return to the Earth. The tourists will be accommodated in the hotel for between 4 and 6 days, orbiting the planet once every 90 minutes, and therefore enjoying 16 sunrises and sunsets a day.
The objectives of these ministations include short-term tourism (around 1 week), private research into microgravity and the development of a communications and remote observation platform.
Galactic Suite Moonrace is a filial company of Galactic Suite. With its participation in the GLXP, GSMR will gather the know-how to develop future commercial missions both for private or governmental agencies.
The company is developing a network of organizations, companies and research groups from universities, with great individual capacity in very specialized fields and experience in several ESA missions, which will generate new technologies and knowledge for this and future missions.
It is the development of private spaceports everywhere with space-related theme facilities.
Parallel to the development of space tourism and vehicles that can operate from installations that reduce the degree of complexity of maintenance and preparation of the current rockets and shuttles, Galactic Suite will establish a new generation of private spaceports around the world.
These facilities will have the entire infrastructure needed for the preparation and operating of reusable ships that permit less costly access to space.
The Galactic Suite Spaceport will be built in strategic places around the globe, which will serve as bases for the Point-to-Point flights, suborbital flights that connect intercontinental nodes in journeys of less than 2 hours and from where conventional flights in airplane or in very light jets will depart towards the final destinations. Some of these centres will be Florida, Catalonia, Dubai and Hong Kong.
The GS Spaceport will also serve as a point of departure for tourists visiting the GS Spaceresort space hotels, as well as private ships that make suborbital flights, such as the GS Suborbital, carrying passengers or cargo.
The first of these spaceports will be located in the Tropics, next to the GS Island, and will have a total surface area of 40,000 m2 and will include facilities for launching and maintaining the ships, control and training buildings (including a centrifuge, floatation tank, gymnasiums, infirmary, libraries, conference rooms, etc).
The GS Spaceport will also be complemented with space-related theme facilities, such as hotels, museums, shops, restaurants, thus becoming tourist centres where the public can also watch the launch.
The GS Spaceport will develop cutting-edge technologies to optimise access to space and to reduce the impact of these launches on the environment.
It is the development of a hotel under the sea, at a depth of around 50 metres.
It is conceived as a permanently occupied facility comprising 9 semi-spherical modules, with a bioinspired design, including 1 lobby module and a common space, 4 suite-modules, 1 restaurant-cocktail bar module, 1 wellness-spa module, 1 sealable module providing access to seabed and 1 installation module. It will have a total surface area of 2000 m2.
They will be permanently connected, by means of a tunnel and a service of electric cars, with the surface, from where they will also receive their supply of energy and oxygen. The modules will have artificial atmosphere and thermal control systems. They will be built as aluminium structures with large multilayered windows and will be conveyed to the site and installed there by means of crane ships and pocket submarines.
They can house a total of 8 guests and 6 employees. The interior design features vaulted and undulating spaces.
The first site selected is on the Mediterranean coast, off the municipality of Castelldefels, in Barcelona, 200 m from the coast and at a depth of 50 m on a bed of sand and rock.
The GS Seasuite will provide direct access to the seabed for scuba diving, underwater research or training in neutral floatation for a future space trip to the GS Spaceresort.
