Galactic Suite Space Hotel To Open For Business In 2012::

The year 2012 is going to be remembered forever in the history of space tourism industry. It would be the year when EADS Astrium space jet will take off to the space and in the very same year, the “Galactic Suite,” the first hotel planned in space is expected to open for business. Barcelona-based architect Xavier Claramunt is saying that the space hotel will be the most expensive in the galaxy and will cost $4 million for a three-day stay 300 miles in orbit.

How interesting it would be to see the sun rise 15 times a day and crawl around the pod rooms by sticking themselves to the walls like Spiderman by using Velcro suits. The proposed configuration is a three-bedroom boutique hotel with pods and the designer says that the system is designed for modularity and expansion “based on the natural growth of a grapevine.”

But, how will the passengers take a shower in weightlessness? But, there is nothing to worry as they have got the solution. The guests will enter a spa room in which bubbles of water will float around. But again, the biggest problem is the bathrooms in zero gravity and they haven’t commented anything in this context. Moreover, the space tourists will also take part in scientific experiments, according to the Galactic Suite press release.
