Commercial space hotels
GolbalData’s thematic analyst Francesca Gregory in a recent podcast on space-to-space infrastructure in 2030, shares her prediction about the possibility of commercial space hotels for civilians in 2030.
She said that with the big corporations such as Axiom Space, Blue Origin, Orbital Assembly, and Lockhead Martin Space investing in their own commercial space stations, space-to-space infrastructure will undergo a substantial uptick in investment.
She predicts that the first piece of space infrastructure will be on a small scale but if its demand expands, other sectors can utilize it as well. The ticket prices are expected to be astronomical. Also, while Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin have ascended the interests in journeys, it is set to remain a playground for billionaires for the time being.
T Mobile and SpaceX collaboration
The prediction was followed by the announcement that T Mobile and SpaceX are teaming up to generate cell phone connectivity coverage in most places of the US.
According to Reuters, T Mobile is expected to use SpaceX’s low Earth orbit satellites to give a more effective and robust signal to their customers across the country. It is anticipated to replace the need for satellite phones in remote regions.
Since 2019, Elon Musk’s space company, SpaceX has sent almost 3,000 Starlink satellites into low-Earth-orbit. It has reportedly donated Starlink dishes to help Ukraine stay online despite relentless Russian shelling.
