Plans have been unveiled for the world's first hotel, in space. Russian firm Orbital Technolgies are behind the scheme which will see a hotel placed into orbit 350 kms above the earth to act as a commercial alternative to the International Sopace Station.
The designs were unveiled at an aviation industry event in Moscow and show rhat it would be able to accommodate seven people at one time. They hope that whilst on board, guests will be able to not only admire the view but watch TV and surf the internet.
Orbital Technolgies hope to have the concept off the ground (sorry) by 2016.
Prices are likely to be several hundred thousand pounds per person for a short trip.
