What actually *does* cost 1,000,000,000.00 USD?
The International Space Station!
According to the Wikipedia article, the Station will be completed in 2010 and will remain in use until 2016. It will be used to study the effects of space habitation on human biology, as well as its effects on matter and combustion.
Also, a big shout out to the current crew, apparently their main toilet is currently broken. They're stuck using the "Apollo Bags" until they get a repair crew up there at the end of May. Hang in there, folks!
One other cool fact -- ISS completes one Earth orbit in around 90 minutes. Eat your heart out, Phileas Fogg.
