The Russian company “Orbital Technologies” is going to create a hotel in Earth’s orbit at an altitude of 350 kilometers from the surface. The unusual hotel will be able to accommodate seven guests. It will be opened by 2016 and will probably become the most expensive hotel in history. A five-day stay will cost you about 5 million rubles (about $ 180.000).
The creators plan to make the hotel very comfortable. It will have a sealed shower cubicle (for comparison, the inhabitants of the ISS use a wet sponge). Most likely, there won’t be food in tubes. There will be ready-made dishes from the Earth which will just have to be warmed up in a microwave oven.
