Coming to a galaxy near you! The suits at Playboy Magazine are having fun showing off their vision for the wildest space odyssey many of us would be lucky to encounter in our lifetime. A ‘Playboy Pleasure Hub’- yes, seriously. A ‘Playboy Pleasure Hub’: this club in space may just bring a new definition to that “Mile High Club”.
Heffner has always been the innovator, staying a few steps ahead of the competition at all times. Having come from a time when by 2001 we were supposed to be ruling the solar system with advanced space colonies, and the help of highly sophisticated artificial intelligence, the prospect for making the ‘Playboy Pleasure Hub’ a reality is finally plausible.
With rich digital illustrations by space travel enthusiast Adam Wells, the concept really comes to life with all the bright colours, sleek but organic futuristic lines, and plenty of fun space recreation to be had.
And while the idea of consumer space travel is becoming more and more in vogue, headed by think-bright entrepeneur Richard Branson of Virgin Corporations, it could be years before any of us can even begin to imagine taking off to the dark side of the moon. But really, you can book your trip today with Virgin Gallactic.
In the scheme of things, it’s not even too expensive to make the epic leap ($200,000 from Virgin Gallactic, starting with a $20,000 deposit) but some red flags have to be raised when you start imagining the fuel needed to make these frivolous trips from humble planet Earth to science fiction future fantasy! Is it really worth it?
We hardly have enough fuel as it is, and after the oil crisis of the 1970s you would think we would have learned a thing or two since then. Until we can implement more plentiful, affordable, and renewable sources of energy (ex. solar, wind, free-energy), maybe all our trips into the far reaches of our solar system should be halted- no matter how sexy it’s supposed to be.
