If you are planning for a 'out of the world' experience you can now have it. Russian company Orbital Technologies reveals plans for space hotel. But a visit to this space hotel may cost your pocket nearly $1m, reports news.com.au.
The hotel, designed by Orbital Technologies, will accommodate 7 guests in 4 cabins. Due to open by 2016, visitors can choose beds that are either vertical or horizontal. Showers will be sealed in order to stop water going where it shouldn’t and toilets will use air instead of water to flush away waste. The air will be filtered to remove any smells and bacteria before being pushed back into the cabin.
It will take two days on board a Soyuz rocket in order to reach it.
It does come with a price, it will cost $942,000 to visit the hotel. A five day stay is expected to be about $157,000, plus the cost of the trip there: $785,000.
But for those whom money doesn't matter, gear up for one unforgettable trip. The company promises amazing view of Earth and comfort right up there. It will be possible to look at the Earth through large portholes.
“Our planned module inside will not remind you of the International Space Station,” Sergei Kostenko, chief executive of Orbital Technologies said.
Food will be prepared on Earth and reheated in microwaves. The menu is braised veal cheeks with mushrooms, white bean puree and plum compote.
Alcohol will not be allowed and tourists will be accompanied by experienced crew.
