World’s First-Ever Space Hotel Urged To Go Vegan

The world’s first-ever space hotel is facing calls to go vegan

Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC), a large-scale space construction company, aims to build The Voyager Class space station in 2026.

Space hotel

The hotel – which will hold up to 280 guests and 112 crew members – is slated to open in 2027. It will feature facilities such as a restaurant, bar, and gym, as well as an impressive view of Earth. 

The Voyager Class will simulate moon-like levels of gravity and will slowly spin round to prevent guests from flying away. 

It is currently taking reservations but is reported to cost a staggering $5 million for a three-day stay. However, OAC hopes to reduce its cost over time. According to reports, it will eventually reach price parity with ‘a trip on a cruise or a trip to Disneyland’.

‘A delicious five-star vegan menu’

Although its menu has not been confirmed, reports say ‘freeze-dried ice cream will be a staple dish’ at the hotel.

However, animal-rights charity PETA wrote a letter to CEO and president of OAC John Blincow – requesting The Voyager Class serve exclusively vegan food.

Ingrid Newkirk is the President of PETA. In an online statement, she said: “As the meat, egg, and dairy industries are killing billions of animals a year and devastating the environment, interest in vegan eating is skyrocketing.

“PETA urges Orbital Assembly to comet to dishing up a delicious five-star vegan menu that’s sure to land well with guests.”

Are you taking the Michael. We’re not all bloody rabbits, most people do like and want to eat meat and for me with red meat extremely rare. In fact I would quite often fight off the vet trying to get it back on its feet.

This is just another case if “I like it, so you have to do it” extremitism on a par with Isis.

I read the article expecting “save some food transport trips & grow everything onboard”, but instead of a slight bit of intelligence, the veganist simply brought the old adage of “animals are dying”.

I suggest to any vegan to try to raise the ante. Maybe it’s the type of manufactured protein some eat which kills brain activity.(and yes, as a meat-muncher, it is possible to tell if someone is an extreme vegan from the look, the smell, and the brain activity. Something to do with over-manufactured fake foods rather than eating only fruit &veg.).
