Space, the final frontier, many of us wonder what lies beyond and what mysteries we can solve. Those same thoughts, however, does not come to Russian space agency Rosmocos, as they had recently revealed their plans to build a 5-star hotel on the International Space Station (ISS)
This new orbital luxury pad will include four private cabins measuring in at 2 cubic meters each with large potholes toward the direction of Earth, allowing visitors to view our planet from a distance of 400 miles in space. Vertigo prone individuals need not apply.
Within this orbital hotel lies a lounge within the module which has a 16-inch window, two medical and hygiene stations, exercise equipment and even Wi-Fi if that were to be believed. Activities proposed for these cosmonautic visitors include, space walks accompanied by an experienced astronaut.
The proposed hotel will cost more than USD 450 million which is to be funded by private and state investments while tourist aiming to stay at this exquisite location will have to fork out USD 40 million per person for a one to two-week stay. For those aiming for a longer stay with the spacewalk added will have to fork out an additional USD 20 million.
So, do you think this pioneering hotel will make it among the stars, or is it just another pipe dream?
