This week on the Construction Record Podcast digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Moon World Resorts co-founder Michael Henderson about a new resort project that aims to build a massively ambitious structure that brings space tourism down to earth.
Henderson explained the Moon Resort will be a giant sphere with amenities at the sphere’s base, a hotel resort tower inside the lower half of the sphere and a simulation of the lunar surface with a lunar colony in the upper half. The outside of the sphere will use already available topography and maps of the moon’s surface to scale.
Henderson said the project is “well past the idea stage” and is currently looking to secure a location for the first of what he hopes are several moon resorts across the globe.
