'Luxury Space Hotel' to launch in 2021
Spring breaks will never be the same. A startup named Orion Span has an ambitious plan to launch Aurora Station in 2021. It's been called a "luxury space hotel" that's "affordable." By affordable, they mean a 12-day vacation would cost $9.5 million. The Aurora Station would be the size of a large private jet's cabin.
The idea is to send four space visitors up with a crew of two former astronauts each time. The mode of transportation to get people back and forth hasn't been determined yet. The long term plan is to keep sending up cabins to attach together and possibly establish a space condo for human living in a low Earth orbit. If you had the money, would you try it?
