Russia’s Orbital Technologies Wants to Put Space Hotel into Orbit by 2016

by Shane McGlaun

We have heard about space hotels before and so far, none of them have come to be. Back in 2009, we talked about one space hotel that was supposed to launch in 2012 but never got off the ground. Now, a Russian company called Orbital Technologies is talking about its own space hotel that will be in orbit by 2016 if all goes well.

Orbital Technologies Space Hotel

The orbiting hotel will hold seven people in four different cabins with room for a crew in there somewhere. The trip is far from cheap, so only the loaded space geek needs to apply. Visitors will get to the station on a Soyuz rocket, which will take two days and cost £500,000 (~$827,500 USD). Then, the five-day stay on the space hotel will cost another £100,000 (~$165,430). The good news is unlike the ISS, the visitors will get showers with water and good food.

The food won’t be out of tubes, it will be cooked on Earth. The food will head up on the rocket with the travelers and be heated in the microwave on the station.

Rooms will be fitted with cameras and binoculars to check out the Earth and other views of space. I think it would be really cool to visit this hotel, but I am betting it will never come to reality.

    I think the idea of putting a hotel in space is awesome! I would love to try it someday. Hopefully it won’t cost that much lol!
