2001 Space Odyssey #DS-47

Space Station V is the partially-built space station depicted in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It the largest orbital structure ever built as of 2001. It is a large, international, rotating wheel space station, used as a transfer point from Earth orbit to the moon and other planets. It featured an orbital hotel, run by Hilton Hotels. The spinning of the station generates artificial gravity, equal to about that of the moon's gravity. This gave travelers from Earth a chance to acclimatize to the low gravity. When will such a space station become a reality!!
