First Look at Space Hotel

While several companies are vying to be the first to give space tourists a flight into earth orbit, one group, Orbital Technologies is aiming to be the first to give them a place to stay. They have plans for a Commercial Space Station which could house up to seven guests. I wonder it the space hotel will have room service and a pool?

Forget spring break trips to Cancun — in the future everyone will holiday in the Commercial Space Station created by Orbital Technologies (assuming it ever gets constructed). Space hotel guests will have access to the stars, via Russian Soyuz rockets. It only costs about $164,000 to stay for five days in the CSS. But getting you there will put you back another large chunk of change. The Daily Mail rounds out the total costs (including travel) to be a around $511,000.
