The first space entertainment complex

(+2, -3)

When we finally put hotels and such in space, I propose that a whole entertainment complex be built. Sports bars, dance clubs, movie theaters and miniture golf will all be included in this complex. What will make this first orbiting space complex unique will be the fact that it never gets any sun light. It orbits in the earths shadow so as to keep the party going FOREVER.

       Just make it go backwards, of course.

       That would require a 365 day orbit. Not something that is particularly possible. The other option is to have no windows, but wheres the fun in that?

       Yay, no microsoft.

       I've heard of this place but I don't think I'll be going - it's supposed to be pretty shady.   

       (To solve your infeasible orbit, build it on the moon.)

       Orbit would work out at L2, I think. Bit of a distance, though. <linky>

       I guess that rules out solar power...

       [copro] yes, but the place is full of Curry's and Dixon's managers clutching 5 Year warranties   

       Sounds a little Las Vegas (without, as [Honduras] says, the sunshine) - I guess Elvis is already there, so why not?

       Let's hope nobody sprains their wrist if they bump into this

       Geo-stationary satelites do this. The complex would just be a whole lot larger.
