I know it sounds crazy, but they are planning to build a hotel orbiting earth, to be launched in pieces from japan and set up by astronauts, its going to be completed in the year 2040.

What are your thoughts on this? I think its stupid, people would have to train to be able to be in space for months or years or whatever before they go, and why would you want to be in a hotel in space? Shocked ...

No but really, a space hotel is a bad idea, spend the cash on saving animals.

I agree completely.
Lots of better things could be done with the money - like helping people in 3rd world countries or saving animals.

Yeah, if it didn't cost anything, and didn't waste any resources, then fine. But as well as using up money, think of all the fuel they will need to get the pieces up there, and we're running out of fuel as it is.

I don't like the dancing locks, so I've done it for him, you know, just incase he's gone for a while or something.

Heres the first site off of Google... http://www.spacefuture.com/tourism/hotels.shtml

And another one, just a few down.

Hotels in space?

It sounds stupid to me. Waste of money. And who has the money for that anyway? Besides rich people...

Yesh, it would be fun to float, but I just don't see how it can help anyone in any way.

I agree. So many more things need the funding then a space hotel.
Chances are it may not even work. why waste that money when it can save lives?

Yeah, shouldn't we do something about AIDS before we put some hotels in space.

exactly. Well I go by the theory that the government purposefully infected a part of the homosexual population to control it, or even kill it, but thats for another thread
