Nuclear-Powered Flying Hotel Is a Fun (if Ridiculous) New Concept


An outlandish concept for a nuclear-powered floating hotel has been unveiled, designed to fly with 20 electric engines and an AI pilot in a nearly non-stop flight.

As reported by The Independent, Hashem Al-Ghaili posted a YouTube video showing conceptual plans for the Sky Cruise vessel, dubbed the “hotel of the future,” with room for 5,000 guests. Its design combines “features of a commercial plane while offering the epitome of luxury” for passengers who would arrive at the hotel via airliner or private jet.

The narrator claims Sky Cruise would have no carbon footprint, as it would boast 20 electric engines powered solely by “clean, nuclear energy.” This theoretical means that the hotel would never run out of fuel and could stay airborne for several years without ever needing to touch the ground, with maintenance and repairs also carried out above the clouds.

The concept for the cruiser, originally designed by Tony Holmsten and reimagined in the animations by Al-Ghaili, includes a command deck that would use AI to predict air turbulence so that it can “glide over the vibrations with ease,” as well as a medical facility equipped with technology to keep passengers safe, healthy, and fit during their journey.
