Re: Green Space Hotel

[color=#FF0000:post_uid0]Has anyone read the proposal for a 'Green Space' hotel in the book "On to Mars" by the Mars Society?

It proposes creating a hotel to promote environmentalism and space exploration/settlement.  It would combine a great hotel with a great educational center.  I assume you either have the book or are planning on getting it soon, so I won't go into length describing the plan.

I'll be graduating in a year and I think that might be my first big project.  (I haven't been able to get a hold of the author to see what he has done with it yet.)  Of course I don't have any start-up capital, so I need people to help out.  Maybe we could form a co-op like in the 'Red Mars' series.

Let me know what you think about the plan and if you want to participate.[/color:post_uid0]

Re: Green Space Hotel

[color=#000000:post_uid0]I assume you've seen the news about plans to build a Moon-themed hotel in Las Vegas? Not exactly what you're talking about here, but it does have a fair amount of stuff about space, and supposedly will have a full scale mockup of the ISS. Unfortunately I can't find a link right now although I do know there is info on the Internet about it.[/color:post_uid0]
