The future of space hotels?

Space hotelHotels in space might not be just science fiction. A spacecraft called Genesis 1 has been launched into space from Siberia  by Bigelow Aerospace, a company set up by hotel tycoon Robert Bigelow. This folded craft is inflated once safely in orbit and apparently it is this principle that might be used in the future to link similar craft together to form a hotel.   The company is worked on the possibility of a full-scale space hotel called Nautilus. Personally, I find it quite hard to visualise but I don’t doubt that space hotels are inevitably around the corner… one day.
