Finally, You Can Get A Hotel Room In SpaceS

Talk about getting seriously, seriously away from it all.

And all you need is a shitload of cash!

Space tourists will have to pay £500,000 to travel on a Soyuz rocket to get to the hotel before stumping up a further £100,000 for a five-day stay.

"The hotel will be aimed at wealthy individuals and people working for private companies who want to do research in space," said Sergei Kostenko, chief executive of Orbital Technologies, which will construct the orbiting guest house. "A hotel should be comfortable, and this one will be."

Well done, Russian engineers. The mega-wealthy were just starting to get bored.
