The Final Frontier

The nascent, but certainly not undiscussed, niche of space travel is back in the headlines today. Reuters is reporting that a $3 billion anonymous donation will help open The Galactic Suite Space Resort to its first guests in 2012. Barcelona-based Galactic Suite Ltd has been working since 2007 to create a single pod in orbit about 280 miles above Earth that can contain four guests and two astronaut-pilots.

An estimated stay at The Galactic Suite Space Resort will cost about $4.4 million for a three-night stay at the hotel, including an eight-week training course on an island in the Caribbean. Galactic Suite Ltd told Reuters that guests will see the sun rise 15 times a day, travel around the world every 80 minutes, and wear velcro suits to crawl around the pod rooms by sticking to the walls.

It will take a day and a half to reach the pod before the three-day stay in orbit.
“When the passengers arrive in the rocket, they will join it for three days, rocket and capsule,” Calamut said. “With this we create in the tourist a confidence that he hasn’t been abandoned. After three days the passenger returns to the transport rocket and returns to earth.”
