We’re putting a hotel on the Moon!

This isn’t a joke. We’re serious, and we’d like you to get involved.

It isn’t a pipe dream either. It’s going to happen. The space industry is in a period of transformation, shifting from government funded space exploration, yielding little or no economic return, to high-demand space tourism, which is expected to yield billions and, in so doing, drive down the costs of space travel.

A galaxy of space technology companies, travel industry big wigs, national government space programs and constellations of angel investors are forging collaborations to make the almost universal dream of commercial space travel a reality.

Virgin Galactic has already sold upwards of 500 tickets for suborbital flights, which will commence regularly from late 2013 – the technology and design sophistication of their craft, especially its ingenious method for re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere, revealing just how much current technology, knowledge, creativity and private investment can achieve.

The future habitation of the moon and our solar system is inevitable.

By acting as a conduit for information and research around affordable, efficient space travel and the establishment of fabulous and viable Moon quarters, however, Accommodation.com will most certainly be speeding things up a little. We will also be forging relationships with leading technology, construction and tourism companies, aerospace organisations, investors and anyone who can lend a hand.

Our target date is the year 2030.

And yes, this is possible.

The Barcelona based Galactic Suite Group plans to launch the first module for their Space Resort, the first hotel in space, in 2014. China’s thus far highly successful Lunar Exploration Program aims to establish the first manned lunar base sometime after 2030. Their lunar rover, Chang’e 3 will be seeking out suitable Moon base locations on the lunar surface for three whole months next year.

So get involved.

If you’re a scientist, investor, economist, architect, engineer, travel professional or just full of great ideas, we want to hear from you. Read through our Project Moon pages and tell us what you think. If it stinks, we want to know. Your intelligent criticism and insights will bring us closer to our dream.

Our philosophy is the pursuit of quality and the guiding words of mankind’s greatest physicist:

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

Albert Einstein
