You may not have been aware that there is a hotel company somewhere with $5 billion to blow and a total hobby-horse about the Moon. But guess what: There is!
Space tourism is slowly becoming a reality with billionaires making seemingly regular visits to the stars and the world's first space hotel planned to make its debut in 2027. Despite the promising progress, it may take a while before space tourism is available at a more accessible price point.
So what's the next best thing in the meantime? Perhaps this new moon-shaped hotel coming to the Las Vegas Strip.
Oh, really, that's the "next best thing?" Is it? You be the judge of that. Here's a mockup of the hotel against the Dubai skyline:
Yeeughhh... that just looks weird, doesn't it? It looks like—and here I'm just spitballing—but it looks like the moon sitting in the middle of a city. And that's not a real good look.
Here's imagery of the hotel in its final resting place of Las Vegas:
Oof. It kinda looks like Las Vegas was the victim of the world's gentlest lunar impact, doesn't it? It's just uncomfortable.
You know where the moon belongs?
It's just common sense, really.
