Is Space Tourism About to Take Off?

August 19, 2011 at 1:13 pm Leave a comment

A Russian company has released ambitious plans for the world’s first space hotel, due to open in 2016.

Orbiting 350km above the Earth, the space station will sleep just seven guests, making it a true boutique hotel. But those checking-in should not expect to find luxury on board. There will be no en-suite bathrooms, nor even any showers, although there will be wet wipes.

All food will be freeze dried, there will be no smoking, no drinking and certainly no day trips. What there will be, however, are unbeatable views, and your holiday snaps will blow everyone else’s out of the water when you post them on Facebook.

At £100,000 for a weekend break, the space hotel can claim to be the most expensive hotel in the universe (that we know of); we hope breakfast is included. Flights to the hotel will be estimated to cost about £500,000, or £500,005 with speedy boarding.
