Will our grandchildren spend their vacations on the moon, or their honeymoons in a hotel orbiting Mars? A few dreamers at the International Tourism Fair say space trips for average travelers could come sooner than we think.

A company at the fair displayed a model of a space hotel for space tourists that it hopes to build one day. However, the model shows that travelers won\'t find as much comfort floating in space as they would in a normal hotel on Earth.

The space hotel, designed for use on the International Space Station, is comprised of four tiny rooms with berths for couples, a common room and a very simple bathroom. As for food, space tourists would also have to eat dried foods like astronauts instead of delicious meals prepared by a chef.

This artificial colony on the space stations is incredibly lacking compared to the quality of life on Earth, said German astronaut Ulf Merbold. There are much more comfortable places than a shuttle to spend a honeymoon … You cannot kiss the bride with a space-suit helmet on.

But lack of comfort isn’t the only problem. There are safety and price concerns too.

Dieter Isakeit of the European Space Agency pointed out that the space station is not like a plane in which the cockpit is separate from the passengers’ cabin. It is as if people in a hospital could walk in and out of the operating room during a heart operation.

But despite the lack of comfort, there are still many people willing to pay a lot of money to travel to space. If this hotel becomes a reality, a one-week stay will cost about US$2 million (NT$65 million). (AFP)

    我們的孫子將花費他們的假期在月亮嗎,或他們的蜜月在環繞火星周圍軌道而行的一間酒店中? 一些做夢的人在國際的觀光事業展覽會發言權隔開旅行,因為平均的旅客可以來搶先佔有土地之人比較我們想。 一家公司在展覽會為它希望建立一天的空間觀光客顯示了空間酒店的一個模型。 然而,模型顯示旅客不將在空間中發現像他們一樣的很多的安慰浮控將會在地球上的一間正常的酒店中。 空間酒店,為在國際太空站上的使用設計,對於夫婦,一個普通的房間和一間非常簡單的浴室和停泊處的四個極小的房間被包含。 關於食物,空間觀光客將會也必須吃像太空人一樣的乾燥食物而非被一個主廚準備的可口的一餐。 在太空站上的這人造的殖民地無法置信缺乏與在地球上的生活的品質相較,德國太空人 Ulf Merbold 說。 有更加舒服的地方勝於一個太空梭花費一次蜜月…你開著一頂空間-訴訟的鋼盔不能夠吻新娘。但是安慰的缺乏不是唯一的問題。 也有安全和價格關心。 歐洲空間的減肥者 Isakeit 代理指出太空站不像一個駕駛員座艙是來自乘客的小屋的分開的飛機。 它是好像人在一所醫院中可以走入和在心行動期間離開操作房間。 但是不在乎缺乏安慰,仍然有許多人願意支付許多錢旅行隔開。 如果這一間酒店變成事實,一一星期的停留將花費大約美國二百萬元 (新台幣六千五百萬元).
