Do you mean like those rumors in the seventies where by 1990 the moon would be colonised?

They are working on it.

The programs were set up some time ago, but things like this take time. You just gotta be patient. Not to mention all the other things NASA is working on (building a robot, designing new space ships, etc.) I guess its just not their first priority right now.

Vacations in space -

ISS = $20 million per stay

Bigelow's space hotel = $7.9 million per stay

That's the expected cost. That price is largely inflated by fuel costs. When we get a space tether up and running that price would tumble to below a million in a hurry. No timelines though, it'll happen when we have the technology to attempt it.

There are many factors involved to make this a reality.

Launch vehicles to get you to a LEO are still many years away let alone the construction of the accom and associated requirements.

And assuming the above goes without a hitch.

One catastophic failure would set this movement back 5 - 10 years on top of the initial wait.
