via BornRich. This is really cool… I’ve been reading a lot about the developments of space tourism recently. Check it out.

A trip to space is still big on the list of the uber-rich, and the latest news from the space tourism industry is the announcement of the world’s first commercial space station by two Russian aerospace companies – Orbital Technologies and Rocket and Space Corporation Energia (RSC Energia). They say that private citizens, professional crews and corporate researchers could use the station. The Commercial Space Station (CSS) is to be built with space-certified elements, modules and technologies of the highest standards. The station will have a crew capability of up to seven people. Orbital Technologies chief executive Sergey Kostenko said…

Once launched and operational, the CSS will provide a unique destination for commercial, state and private spaceflight exploration missions. We look forward to working with corporate entities, state governments and private individuals from around the world.

The estimated cost hasn’t been revealed, but the Commercial Space Station is expected to launch by 2016. The announcement has come as a straight competition for Las Vegas-based Bigelow Aerospace as they plan to have a commercial space station ready by 2015.

Man, I wish I could live here… The Maldives. Unfortunately, it is not a real loft, however, it is normally a 12-seat restaurant at the Hilton Maldives Resort and Spa, located 5 meters under water… It was temporarily converted into a suite to celebrate its 12th year anniversary. Apparently guests now have the chance to sleep under the sea (for a limited time). Pretty crazy. via Luxist.
