Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC), the space construction company tasked with building the space station, says it will be composed of a series of rings that will each have a very different purpose.

The first ring, known as the docking hub, will be where space crafts first connect with the massive structure, allowing excited space travelers to take their first steps.

Once the docking hub is completed, construction on the outer ring truss (ORT) will begin.

This section of the station will include an access tube that will allow visitors to move around the station as they please.

The final ring, the habitation area, will then be built underneath the ORT and include a series of modules that will feature amenities such as gyms, restaurants, bars, theaters, hotels, and even government-owned research and training facilities. 

The designers of the ship also have a goal of creating artificial gravity by increasing or decreasing the constant rotation of the station.

Once completed, Voyager Station will be the largest man-made structure in space.

OAC hopes to make the station operational by 2027, but prices for taking a vacation to space have yet to be released.
