Rents in Southsea are getting prohibitive, but how about paying $75 million per calendar month?

Aerospace magnate Robert Bigelow is offering a room with a five-ocean view on board the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module in space.

The module is a giant inflatable beach ball (made of Kevlar to deflect bullet-like meteorites) and will connect to the International Space Station in 2015.

If the B.E.A.M. launch is successful, Bigelow hopes millionaire tourists will book it for holidays.

It is unclear whether tenants will have to shampoo carpets at the end of their tenancy.
