That’s no moon. It’s a hotel.
Plus, there was “chaos” at Heathrow as passengers reportedly waited six hours to clear passport control.
Space Hotel Opening in 2027?
The Orbital Assembly Corporation’s (OAC) space hotel might be ready as soon as 2027, the Daily Mail reports.
The space station will reportedly include “features you might expect from a cruise ship, including themed restaurants, a health spa and a cinema” as well as “a gym, kitchen, restaurant, bar and other essential facilities for people due to be on the station longer term.”
The rotating hotel will “cruise around the whole world every 90 minutes.”
Our planned orbit and elevation for Voyager Station is 97 deg and 500-550 km. This is a sun-synchronous polar orbit that will reduce thermal stress and allow for almost continuous solar power generation. There, orbit degradation and space debris risk will be nominal. pic.twitter.com/DAIpr6Zp94

Heathrow Passport Control Problems
Daily Mail also has the scoop on a situation that sounds absolutely horrible.
[P]assengers queued for six hours to get through passport control with no social distancing, food or water – with arrivals saying just two members of staff manned 10 desks, a claim the Home Office has vehemently denied.
Ten flights are believed to have arrived close to each other at the airport as Terminal 2’s immigration hall filled with people who were fuming that only two officials were on duty at the passport counter to check their documentation.
Irate passengers were left furious as they stood in line for hours to pass through border checks, with one warning: ‘This is how you spread the virus.’
