Voyager and Lockheed Martin have found a partner to design astronaut facilities for their space station. Hilton will develop suites and bedrooms for Starlab, CNBC reports. Under the partnership, Hilton and Voyager will also pursue Starlab-related marketing opportunities and trips to what could be one of the first space hotels.

NASA has awarded contracts to four private companies that are building private space stations ahead of the agency’s planned decommissioning of the International Space Station at the end of the decade. Axiom Space, Blue Origin and Northrop Grumman are also working on space stations. Voyager’s operating company, Nanoracks, received the largest contract, valued at $160 million.

Voyager and Lockheed Martin hope to have the first Starlab up and running by 2027. I wonder how many Hilton Honors points a trip there will cost?
