ISS has proposed to turn to the hotel for space tourists

General Director of rocket and space Corporation Energia Vladimir Solntsev shared his thoughts about the fate of unused Russian modules of the International space station and offered to use them as space hotels.

«MKS is loaded at 30%. This is the trend nationwide, underutilized. Is the expansion of the Russian segment and replace, we have modules on the ISS fly for 20-25 years, and they went out for resources, and their use for experimentation and serious work less appropriate. Why, for example, it is not transformed in some kind of space hotel, relatively speaking. Those modules that we have adapted for space tourism», — TASS quoted the General Director of RSC Energia.

The sun said that now work is underway on modernization of the spacecraft "Soyuz". So he could fly around the moon, for revision you want to spend about $ 500 million. In its current form ship to the moon just will not fly, but an upgraded version — quite. Having such a ship, it would be possible to invite the tourists to the ISS, but still need to do "Union".
