    Virgin Galatic Negotiates with Bigelow on Space Hotel
    Project: ET2 Architecture?
    Robert Bigelow, president of Bigelow Aerospace based in Las Vegas, NV. and owner of the Budget Suites of America Hotel Chain among other enterprises, has been in private talks with Virgin Galactic's Sir Richard Branson and aerospace designer legend Burt Rutan about the prospects of building a an on-orbit space hotel.

    "We are talking to people who are developing hotels for space. We are also talking to people who are developing launch craft to get hotels into space. People know that we can turn something that might seem a bit bizarre into a commercial reality. Personally, I think there's a demand for space hotels," Branson said while in Dubai last week discussing a new spaceport venture there.

    Bigelow will launch a habitat prototype on a Dnepr booster from ISC Kosmotras, a Russian and Ukrainian rocket-for-hire company in 2007. Bigelow has hoped to launch with Elon Musk's less-than-perfect Falcon 1.
