In the future, space travel will be the domain of the wealthy. For those with money to blow, they'll be able to break free of Earth's gravitational pull. Orbital Technologies, a Russian firm, has plans to build the place those millionaires rest once they leave the big blue ball.
Orbital Technologies plans to launch a space hotel in 2016 able to hold seven people at any given time. To get people to the hotel, Oribital will put them on a Russian Soyuz rocket that will run a cool $823,000. The five-day stay will cost another $165,000. The hotel will have showers, cameras and binoculars, and serve gourmet meals which will be sent to the station after being cooked and prepared on Earth.
