Galactic Suite Space Resort 'on target' for 2012


www.heraldsun.com.au

A COMPANY behind plans to open the first hotel in space is on target to accept its first paying guests in 2012 despite critics questioning the investment and time frame for the multi-billion dollar project.
The Barcelona-based architects of The Galactic Suite Space Resort say it will cost €3 million ($4.4 million) for a three-night stay at the hotel, with this price including an eight-week training course on a tropical island.

But critics have questioned the project, saying the time frame is unreasonable and also where the money is coming from to finance the project.

Who the hell are these critics? What should it matter to them where the money comes from?

Given that NASA and other space agencies seem to be lagging with limited (that we know of) government funding - what's wrong with trying to get paying customers into space?

The UFO issue will be one thing to sort out. Will travellers have to sign a NDA? I doubt it but who knows.

Good times ahead. If they're ready to fly by 2012, then they might find that they're on the life-raft for when the SHTF event is rumoured to take place (yeah, right...).

Besides, who wouldn't pass up an eight week training course on a tropical island holiday?

I wonder who have claimed 'space' as their property ?
I cant imagine any one have the right to deny me to fly to the moon in my own built rocket.. I'd say 'theft of freedom' if that is the case !


Of topic , but looked like a suitable thread to ask in !

I would do this for sure if I had the money for it.
I wouldnt be first in line, I'd do an Obama and see if the 1000 first passengers survives the 'test trips'.

The critics are right to ask the questions they have. Because that is how scams are rooted out.

Not saying this is a scam, but dont bad mouth critics. Critics are the people who ask the right questions, and who try to bring out the truth. If this company is legit then having the critics ask these questions and answering them will help them be seen in a better light. Thus driving up business.

It's a great idea, but I wonder if they've addressed the problem about the tons of space debris floating in orbit up there. An object, say a bolt, the size of your finger tip, travelling at the right velocity, could rip right through that place and kill someone. It would only take one "accident" to shut the facility down.
