    I can only imagine how expensive the text books for this course must be.

    If the worldwide need for space hotels is a reasonable number like… oh I don’t know say three.  Competitive bidding means there will probably be no less than three designs for each.  Ok, so that is a total of maybe nine designers.  

    If the text book companies plan to only sell 10 copies of the book, each copy will be reasonably priced at $1,000,000 each.

    Of course  you can sell your used copy back to the book store for $50k or on amazon or ebay for $70k

    You could also write up a 100 word document talking about how funny your cat is and upload it to scribd which will allow you to download a free copy of the book provided by one of the disgruntled students who out of spite posted it once they recovered from the coma caused by the $50k used book offer.

    On the upside, i think this will make longer excursions into space much more appealing and will eventually make space travel much quicker.

    There’s a special design seminar on designing bathroom facilities that lets customers reliably take a dump without ending up smeared in filth.

    I remember seeing something a while back about adapting the external fuel tanks from the space shuttles for use as space hotel components. Guess that idea is gone now.

    This is horrible- we can’t allow the Corporate Life Form to escape the Gravity Quarantine!! Space should remain free- do we really want the exploration of the Universe to become just another mixed use development with a shopping mall in the basement?!!
