Billionaire Robert Bigelow who was the founder of Budget Suites, is planning a new project in space, that project is an inflatable space hotel. He hopes to have it completed by the year 2021. His new company Bigelow Space Operations is starting to build two space modules. These two modules are to serve as the brand new orbiting hotels for the Bigelow company. Both space modules will connect and make a 55 feet long space station that will operate at a low earth orbit. If the Hotel is successful it will not only be a huge leap for the space tourism industry, but its application could be used by governments seeking orbital space labs. Bigelow noted that the price per stay would be in the low eight figures.
This Hotel can be more than one small step for a man, it is one giant leap for mankind!
