It's 50 years since man first stepped on the moon, and we're still harboring dreams of escapinglife on Earth for the mysteries of space.


If a career as an astronaut isn't for you, perhaps the promise of a sojourn in a space hotelmight be appealing.


Californian company The Gateway Foundation has released plans for the Von Braun Station, acruise ship-style hotel floating among the stars.


The aim is to get the hotel off the ground by 2025 and make it fully operational for travel by2027.


According to digitally rendered video and images released by the Gateway Foundation, thestation resembles a rotating wheel, comprised of 24 modules, orbiting the Earth.


Tim Alatorre, senior design architect at the Gateway Foundation, says the rotating wheelwould create a simulated gravity.


"The station rotates, pushing the contents of the station out to the perimeter of the station, much in the way that you can spin a bucket of water -- the water pushes out into the bucketand stays in place," he tells CNN Travel.


The Gateway Foundation's hotel design is named for Wernher von Braun, an aerospace engineerwho pioneered rocket technology, first in Germany and later in the United States.


"The basic physics of the station haven't changed since the 1950s, the way the station rotates," says Alatorre.


The main difference is the modern materials -- new metal alloys, carbon composites, 3Dprinting and launch pad technology that, says Alatorre, make a space hotel more probable inour current era.


Space tourism is an expensive game -- Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic plans to launchpassengers into sub-orbital space at the hefty sum of $250,000 per person, per trip.


Meanwhile, Aurora Station says a stay in its space hotel will cost an eyewatering $9.5 million.


Price wise, in the early phases the Von Braun hotel will also be catering to those with dollars tospend, but the foundation is hoping to make it equivalent to "a trip on a cruise or a trip toDisneyland."


Aurora Station aims to sleep just 12, whereas the Von Braun Station will sleep 352 people witha maximum capacity of 450.


So what will Von Braun Station be like inside?


Alatorre says the hotel's aesthetic was a direct response to the Stanley Kubrick movie "2001: A Space Odyssey" -- just maybe not in the way you might think.


"I think the goal of Stanley Kubrick was to highlight the divide between technology andhumanity and so, purposefully, he made the stations and the ships very sterile and clean andalien."


Instead, Alatorre wanted to bring a slice of earth to space, to avoid a laboratorial, overly StarTrek-esque feel.


On board, there'll be warm suites with carpets and stylish monochrome touches and chic barsthat wouldn't look out of place back on Earth, just with star-gazing views.


There will also be plenty of fun recreational activities for guest to enjoy, says Alatorre.


"We're going to have a number of different recreation activities and games that'll highlight thefact that you're able to do things that you can't do on Earth," he says. "Because of theweightlessness and the reduced gravity, you'll be able to jump higher, be able to lift things, beable to run in ways that you can't on Earth."


If it all sounds like a space-age gimmick, Alatorre is emphatic that the concept will havewidespread, enduring appeal.


"People will want to go and experience this just because it's a cool new thing and they've neverdone it before," he admits.
