Space hotel sees 2012 opening

Damn that looks cool

http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/08/14/s...eut/index.html

"Galactic Suite", the first hotel planned in space, expects to open for business in 2012 and would allow guests to travel around the world in 80 minutes.

Its Barcelona-based architects say the space hotel will be the most expensive in the galaxy, costing $4 million for a three-day stay.

During that time guests would see the sun rise 15 times a day and use Velcro suits to crawl around their pod rooms by sticking themselves to the walls like Spiderman.

Company director Xavier Claramunt says the three-bedroom boutique hotel's joined-up pod structure, which makes it look like a model of molecules, was dictated by the fact that each pod room had to fit inside a rocket to be taken into space.

"It's the bathrooms in zero gravity that are the biggest challenge," says Claramunt. "How to accommodate the more intimate activities of the guests is not easy."

Any guesses on the first "Space Tennis Match"?

It's very cool, but very expensive.

It's more expensive than you think, anybody can afford the $4 mil, but who wants to go alone right?

So you have to fork out another $4 mil for a date

Better start saving now (or be that date )
