With the touch down of Atlantis marking the final space shuttle launch from NASA, America will have to seek out the Russians for any outer galactic help. As of now, Russian-built space capsules are the only way to get astronauts to the International Space Station or any other orbital outposts. But with these Orbital Technologies’ space hotels that may not be a problem at all.
These super comfy pods may even stir up the idea of future space tourism. The pods are supposed to be launched in 2016, and would be offered to wealthy travelers and private companies such as those owned by ex-astronauts. With microwavable food, sealed showers and your choice of a vertical or horizontal bed, there is no question that these shuttles were made for leisure. Accessible from Rusian Soyuz rocket launches, a vacation to the moon will be more than jumping-for-joy worthy.
