Orion Span wants to launch a space hotel at $9.5 million per ticket

First-ever hotel to launch in space by 2021

Right now, it's unclear how Aurora Station and its future occupants will get to orbit; Orion Span has yet to confirm any deals with launch providers, Bunger said.

In all, prices will start from $9.5 million (£6.7 million) per person for a 12-day stay in zero gravity, orbiting at 200 miles off Earth's surface. The training cost has also been reduced substantially.The guests onboard will have the luxury to watch 16 sunrises and sunsets each day as the hotel will revolve around the blue planet every 90 minutes. An $80,000 deposit is required to reserve your spot.

"Orion Span has additionally taken what was historically a 24-month training regimen to prepare travelers to visit a space station and streamlined it to three months, at a fraction of the cost".

The aforementioned three-month training certification, the Orion Span Astronaut Certification (OSAC), is completed in three parts; the first online, the second at Orion Span's state-of-the-art training facility in Houston, Texas, and the third on Aurora Station itself. The space hotel named Aurora Station will be launched in a low-earth orbit at an altitude of 322 km, while the International Space Station is at an altitude of 408 km. On return to Earth, guests will be treated to a hero's welcome home.

Once on board the Aurora, up to six passengers, including professional astronaut guides, will share a 35-foot-by-14-foot living space.

"Aurora Station is incredibly versatile and has multiple uses beyond serving as a hotel", Bunger added. Frank Bunger who is the founder of CEO of Orion Span said that the price tag quoted by the hotel for per person i.e. $9.5 million United States dollars is less expensive thanks to the declining launch prices. Two crew members will service the vacationers, who will also have access to a holodeck, unlimited hours of zero-grav loitering, and the opportunity to grow plants in space. "Like a city rising from the ground, this unique architecture enables us to build up Aurora Station in orbit dynamically and with no impact to the remainder of Aurora Station".

Four months worth of reservations have already been secured since Orion Span made the hotel announcement earlier this week, according to a recent Twitter update issued by the company. In case you change your mind, Orion Span can give you back the money anytime.
