Hilton is collaborating with Voyager Space to design space for astronauts for Starlab

The two companies announced Tuesday that Hilton will partner with Voyager Space to design living quarters for astronauts on the Starlab commercial space station.

The hotel giant will work with a private space technology company to develop public areas, hospitality and lodging suites for Starlab astronauts, according to press releases from the companies. They said they would also “explore opportunities” to work together on the “Astronauts From Earth to Space Experience,” global marketing, tourism and other efforts.

Hilton CEO Chris Nassetta said in a statement that the company is “delighted” to collaborate with Voyager Space and that the partnership underscores its commitment to “spreading the light and warmth of hospitality and providing friendly, reliable accommodation – both on Earth and in outer space.”

“Starlab will be more than a destination, it will be an even more unique and artistic experience without boundaries as the Hilton team integrates innovation, expertise and global expansion,” said Dylan Taylor, CEO of Voyager Space, in a statement. “Voyager and Hilton have a strong focus on finding innovative solutions for the future of humanity and this partnership opens new doors for what’s possible for space exploration and comfort-focused housing.”

Nanoracks, Lockheed Martin and Voyager Space announced their collaboration to create Starlab, which they describe as the first commercial free-to-fly space station, in October 2021.

The planned space station is designed to host up to four astronauts simultaneously and features a laboratory system for scientific research and manufacturing, according to Lockheed Martin. It will also support tourism and other commercial efforts.

In December, NASA said it had awarded $160 million to Nanoracks to develop a space station design as part of the agency’s efforts to maintain an American presence in space while the International Space Station is phased out. Blue Origin and Northrop Grumman have also received funding for their space station concepts.

Starlab is expected to be operational by 2027, according to Lockheed Martin.
