Ever wondered where astronauts who go to moon stay? In a Swedish cottage!!! Atleast that is what Sweden plans to claim as it plans to build a cottage, so typical of a Swedish countryside on the moon.

Unlike the wooden cottages made in Sweden, this cottage is planned to be made of a lighter material that shall also be collapsible and inflatable easily so that it is easier to carry and install on the surface of the moon.

Sweden has also announced a competition amongst students for the design of the special cottage that will make Sweden the third country to make it to the moon by 2011. The project is estimated to cost around 500 million dollars and if not for financial constraints is now deemed a reality.
