Flying Hotel to accommodate 5000 guests
The Sky Cruise is powered by 20 nuclear engines and can accommodate 5,000 passengers.
A wacky concept of a nuclear-powered floating hotel has been unveiled.
The recently revealed Sky Cruise is a nuclear-powered flying hotel created by Hashem Al-Ghaili, a Yemeni engineer and video producer who unveiled his vision for an artificial intelligence-driven aircraft capable of carrying thousands of passengers, transforming the world of hospitality and aviation. .
Sky Cruise is a gigantic hybrid between an airplane and a nuclear-powered cruise ship.
Designed to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Al-Ghaili even adds that ongoing repairs would be carried out in flight, a first in aviation.
Inspired by the paintings of artist Tony Holmsten, the initial concept of this aircraft was redesigned and brought to life by Hashem Al-Ghaili himself.
Although an artificial intelligence system will pilot the Sky Cruise, a licensed human operator can take control of it at any time.
The project has many detractors, who question its viability due to aerodynamics and maintenance issues and wonder how such a giant could get off the ground.
Another question that needs to be answered is how much it would cost to travel on the Sky Cruise, something that might be within reach of only a few.
Sky Cruise is inspired by the Titanic.
To create Sky Cruise, Al-Ghaili was inspired by a 3D model by Russian designer Alexander Tujikov.
In turn, the Russian based the model of a futuristic cruise ship on an illustration created by Tony Holmsten for the game Killer is Dead. Al-Ghaili bought the rights to the model created by Tujikov and decided to develop a futuristic concept of an air hotel based on it.
The Sky Cruise is not only self-sufficient, but its flight is endless, as the reactor provides enough energy to fly for years.
It will take a few years for Sky Cruise to become a reality, but it’s also exciting to think that this development isn’t science fiction.
The Sky Cruise project comes hot on the heels of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his brother Mark making history by heading to space in July 2021.
