Space hotel - best views around

A Russian company has revealed that they have plans for a space hotel. The hotel will be designed by Orbital Technologies,  the company was founded to open space for private enterprise. According to its website the company is developing key systems, infrastructure, and technologies which are essential to rapidly accelerate the commercial space industry and its applicability to the global marketplace.
They believe that opening space to the commercial sector is critical to the future prosperity of Earth.

The stay in the hotel however will come with a pretty hefty price tag, The cost of the stay in the hotel is relatively cheap compared to the trip to get there. A five day stay will cost you, using the current exchange rate, around R1,133 330. The round trip from Earth to the hotel will set you back a further R5,670 000.

However, the considerable price tag does not mean that you will be living in the lap of luxury. You will be eating microwaved food and will be strapped down while sleeping. When it comes to taking a shower, patrons of the hotel will not be taking sponge baths like actual astronauts. Instead the water will be sealed in packets to prevent it from going all over the place.

The amount of money that you will be spending on this holiday would get you much more luxury on a “Earthbound” holiday, but one thing is for sure for those with lots of extra cash to splash and a sense of adventure, this will literary be an experience out of this world.

The hotel is expected to launch (excuse the pun) in 2016.
