DAILY MAIL -- "Tiring of the annual two-week break in a Med hot spot? Fed up with overcrowded resorts with no room to move? Then how about a real get-away-from-it-all holiday with plenty of space – in space? Russia yesterday announced plans for a hotel in orbit 217 miles up which would house seven guests in four cabins and have huge windows for views of the Earth turning below."
Cost? $165,000 for a five-day stay, plus about $825,000 for transportation via rocket. Due to open in 2016.
