Russia is Building a Hotel in Space

Well! Rich and famous people look for the most exotic places to spend their vacations. Recently Orbital Technologies which is a Russian company has announced plans to make one of the most exotic hotel ever; their idea to create a space hotel for commercial use is both metaphorically and literally out of this world.hote2

The Space Hotel:

This hotel is officially called Commercial Space Station and will be able to accommodate seven guests in four cabins; it will orbit the earth at a height of 350 kilometers above the earth’s surface.hotel2

The guests will be able to relax in zero-gravity and can pass the time by watching TV or surfing the web or sleeping both horizontally and vertically and there will be no flowing water which means washing will be done using wet wipes and even the toilets will carry waste via flowing air.

Space Hotel Features

Waste water and air will all be filtered and recycled in the satellite and then reused by the occupants of the hotel. Food will be prepared on Earth and freeze-dried before being sent up to the hotel, another drawback (for most customers) is the prohibition of the consumption of alcohol in the hotel.hotel1

Vacation has only one standard package costing close to a million dollars; this package consists of a 5 day stay in the Commercial Space Station and the two day trip to and from the Space Station via a Soyuz rocket.hotel3

The development of the hotel, according to Orbital Technologies, is underway and it will be ready for launch by 2016.
