I am doing this post (1)to satiate the teenager/child inside me who wide eyed used to dream of space colonies after reading any articles about space in magazines.
(Though this news is 4 days old, I still have to do this post)
(2)And also for a special post I am going to do a little later.
Once again we have been promised space transportation, and inhabitats. Report in brief:—
The orbital resort: Galactic suite
The place: space
The architecture: tube like
The interiors: 4 meters high X 7 meters wide capsule rooms with Velcro walls and huge windows
The view: 15 sunsets in a day
And the sphere of blue earth.
3 nights stay cost: $ 4.15 millions
Feeling: comfy-no, have to stick on walls like a spider
Thrilling- yes, to the bones
Transcendental-no/ yes, only if I stop feeling excitedly scary.
Recommended for: all of us who have weight issues,
As in galactic suite we would be feeling absolute weightlessness.
Reservations: already on
Resort foundation laid: no
Project: being designed
Constructions plan requirements underway
Architects and space engineers, if you want to, you can join them.
This is what Xavier Claramunt, the architect, designer from Spain has envisioned.
Earlier (a few years ago) Robert Bigelow has also announced similar plans of space hotel which was to realize in 2008. I checked their website. They are making advances but yet not talking anything concrete about the date of launch.
For now, a space theme hotel on the earth would suffice.
