'Luxury Space Hotel' to launch in 2021
- Spring breaks will never be the same. C'mon kids, let's go to the Space Hotel!
- 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.
