It sounds awfully like a signboard hanging in front of a shop just about to open. Except that it might be electronic, in outer space and have robots as attendants. Well, I’m not sure about the first and third part but this business is definitely going to be in outer space.
The Galactic Suite is a project envisioned by company director and former aerospace engineer Xavier Claramunt. A three-day stay is estimated to cost around $ 4 million. Apparently, it’s not such a bad deal. The package will reportedly include eight weeks of intensive training at a space camp on a tropical island. I suppose if your actual vacation goes awry, you can always remember your training on the tropical island with fondness. Hehehe. Staying in the hotel will also allow guests to travel the world in 80 minutes and see 15 different sunrises in a day.
Assuming a molecule structure, the hotel will be connected to a space shuttle in order to assure the guests that they will not simply float away and get lost in space for all eternity. Guests will also be wearing Velcro outfits that stick to walls. There is the big issue of no gravity after all.
Despite the excitement, project Galactic Suite seems to have more than a just few more grounds to cover.
“It’s the bathrooms in zero gravity that are the biggest challenge,” says Claramunt. “How to accommodate the more intimate activities of the guests is not easy.”
How about that? Still, nothing worth pursuing promises to be easy.
If a success, this project will prove to be a big leap for humankind. Soon, this hotel might be followed by Space Burger Joints, Space Suburbs… There’s an infinite amount of opportunities just waiting to be explored.
