Galactic Suite Hotel

Get ready to make your reservations. The Galactic Suite Space Resort is planning its first accommodations by 2012. [Company News] They expect to start selling tickets in 2008.

For 3 million Euros you get 18 weeks of preparation on a Caribbean island, the flight into space and three nights in the orbital hotel. During the stay you get to participate in space experiments. (Its not clear whether you are the subject of the experiments.)

As far-fetched as this may sound, the company reportedly received $3 billion in backing from a space enthusiast to build the hotel. That backer must be one of the 40,000 people in the world who could afford to stay at the hotel.
