Russian Space Hotel

Russian Space Hotel
Russian firm Orbital Technologies announced plans for a hotel in orbit 217 miles up which would house seven guests in four cabins and have huge windows for views of the Earth turning below. Just getting there will be an adventure in itself - it will take two days aboard a Soyuz rocket - and it won't exactly be a budget holiday: A five-day stay will cost you $158,000, on top of $790,000 for your journey.
The hotel, or the Commercial Space Station to give it its proper name, is due to open by 2016 and, according to those behind it, will be far more comfortable than the International Space Station used by astronauts and cosmonauts.The Presurfer
