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

A space construction company planning to open a luxury space hotel by 2027 is being urged to make its menu vegan.

Orbital Assembly Corporation (OAC) recently announced its ambitious project of building The Voyager Class space station—the first commercial “space hotel” with artificial gravity.

The Voyager Station

According to Daily Mail, the aerospace company plans to begin building Voyager Station in low Earth orbit in 2025 and expects to have it operational as soon as 2027.

The hotel will be built as a large circle and be rotated to generate artificial gravity that simulates the gravity found on the surface of the Moon to ensure that guests don’t float away.

The space station will hold up to 280 guests and 112 crew members and feature many facilities such as a restaurant, bar, and gym. Not to forget the breathtaking spectacle of the earth.

While details of other menu items are under wraps, Architectural Digest reported the team plans to serve traditional ‘space food’ such as freeze-dried ice cream in the hotel’s restaurant.

‘Vegan eating is skyrocketing’

Sighting an opportunity, vegan charity PETA wrote a letter to Orbital Assembly Corporation’s CEO and president, John Blincow, requesting him to ‘make a big bang by serving solely vegan food at the hotel’s restaurant’.

Congratulating Blincow on the interstellar project, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in her letter wrote: “I’m writing on behalf of PETA and our more than 6.5 million members and supporters worldwide, including many thousands across California, in response to the exciting news that the Voyager Station will open in 2027.

“We applaud your bold plans, and we have a request: Please, will you serve exclusively vegan foods on the station so that guests who don’t consume meat, eggs, or dairy for ethical, environmental, health, or religious reasons will be able to enjoy the accommodations and so that others will be encouraged to choose foods from a cruelty-free, healthy, and out-of-this-world menu?”

The letter added that a vegan Voyager Station is going to be highly popular and successful as the ‘number of vegans has skyrocketed by 3,000% over the past 15 years and continues to climb’.

It further added that 23% of Americans are now eating more cruelty-free food, and sales of vegan items during the pandemic shot up dramatically.

Newkirk also cited that NASA is planning to incorporate a 100% vegan menu to provide astronauts with healthy meals in space for their proposed Mars mission.

Fivestar vegan menu’

PETA’s CEO in an online statement added: “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.”

‘$5 million-three-day stay’

The company is currently taking reservations, which is reported to be a whopping $5 million for a three-day stay. However, the team told CNN Travel that it will eventually cost the same amount as “a trip on a cruise or a trip to Disneyland.”
