Russian firm Orbital Technologies has unveiled its plans for constructing the first-ever space hotel for travelers and researchers which would orbit around 200 miles above ground.
With a total of four cabins, the hotel would accommodate around seven visitors who could choose to have beds horizontal or vertical beds. Each cabin will have large windows to offer clear views of Earth revolving below.
Compared with the International Space Station, the Commercial Space Station (as the proposed hotel is called) will be more comfortable except for the sealed showers and cold food.
"Our planned module inside will not remind you of International Space Station. A hotel should be comfortable inside, and it will be possible to look at the Earth through portholes. Hotel will be aimed at wealthy individuals and people working for private companies who want to do research in space," the Times of India quoted Sergei Kostenko, chief executive of Orbital Technologies as stating.
There will also be certain restrictions for passengers on board like the prohibition of alcohol consumption.
The Telegraph reported that an average five-day stay at the hotel will cost around $578,000. Check out the images of the proposed space hotel below:
