"The Russian Commercial Space Station"

A Russian company called Orbital Technologies has announced plans for a hotel in orbit -- 217 miles up. It would house seven guests in four cabins, and have huge windows for views of the Earth as it rotates below them. Of course, getting there will half the adventure, as it would take two days aboard a Soyuz rocket. The cost for a five-day stay: $158,000 -- with an addition $790,000 for the journey.

The Commercial Space Station as it's called, is due to open by 2016. Claims are that it will be far more comfortable than the International Space Station currently used by astronauts and cosmonauts.

It's a fascinating idea. Visit the link above to see photos.
