Russian Firm Announces Plans for First Space Hotel

Energia, the lead Russian contractor for the International Space Station, announced plans to build the first hotel in space. Energia hopes to capitalize on the recent enthusiasm for private space tourism. The private space station is planned to house seven people and will serve as a hotel, complete with facilities for scientific research, media projects and entertainment. According to Energia, the project should be completed shortly after 2015 and will likely compete with a space complex planned by Bigelow Aerospace, a Las Vegas firm owned by Budget Suites of America.
