Russian capsule hotel / Space

Categories Destinations, Hotels, Stories3 Comments

wow, thats fun. The russian company Orbital has announced its plans to build a commercial space station which would also serve as a “space-hotel” for tourists. The hotel opening will be in 2016.
Once launched the station will be able to host up to seven passengers in its homey capsule, free of extraneous scientific instruments and pesky astronauts and cosmonauts. It will follow the same orbit as the International Space Station, and will be able to dock with shuttles from around the world.
This orbital nest will host space tourists, scientists from other countries and private industry who want to perform experiments in space, and overflow from the International Space Station during maintenance or emergencies. There’s no word yet on how much a single room at the orbital hotel would cost, but it is for sure that you have in every room a nice view.

Living in style.
