In some 4 years or so, a Space hotel will be built. And you can take a 12-day vacation for only 9.5 million USD.Aura Station is the name of the hotel. It was announced yesterday on Thursday, at the Space 2.0 Summit in San Jose, California.
This modular space hotel is made by Orion Span. The CEO, Frank Bunger, states that the station will be able to accept guests right after launch, and offer a unique experience.
And for the price, it better do!
During their 12-day adventure, the super-rich travelers will fly at a height of 200 miles above the Earth’s surface in Low Earth Orbit, or LEP, where they will witness incredible views of the blue planet. The hotel will orbit Earth every 90 minutes, which means guests will see around 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours.
Deposits are already being accepted for future stays on the space hotel. The $80,000 is fully refundable, should applicants find themselves unable to rise to the full $9.5 million. Travelers will complete a three-month Orion Span Astronaut Certification (OSAC) program before take-off. Orion Span has a team of space industry veterans who together have more than 140 years of human space experience.
So you better start saving…
