Five MIT graduates, in partnership with the NASA, imagine the building of a space hotel.
Christened MARINA (for Managed, Reconfigurable, In-space Nodal Assembly), their concept aims at cutting operating costs for spatial research: they would divide the space shuttle into two parts, one as a luxury hotel to accommodate space tourists; the other to welcome NASA experts. Hence a reduced budget for spatial exploration could be met thanks to revenues generated by space tourism.
The latter could open up new horizons to the world of tourism and hospitality, which may not be a far, faraway dream.
