The first space tourists can pack for 2012


Despite criticism about investment financing and completion deadline, the company Galactic Suite is determined to host the first guests of their space hotel in just three years.

A three nights stay at the Galactic hotel will cost 3 million euros, the price including an 8 weeks training on a tropical island.

During their stay in the orbital hotel, visitors can see the sunrise for 15 times and will make a full circle of the Earth every 80 minutes.

To move around, tourists will wear suits from a special material (Velcro), which will allow them to roam through the hotel clinging to the walls, like Spiderman.

The President of the company, based in Barcelona, Spain, said that an anonymous billionaire, with a passion for space exploration, has donated $ 3 billion to finance the project.

Over 200 people have already expressed the interest to spend a weekend in space – at the Galactic Suite Space Resort – and at least 40 people have already made reservations.
