First Hotel in Space to be launched in 2021

The Aurora Station will launch in 2021 with guests welcomed by 2022

Guests will be able to stay in luxury for 12 days on board the orbiting hotel.

The experience will allow guests to test out zero gravity and gaze upon stunning views of Earth, as well as witness an average of 16 sunrises and sunsets a day. 

The cost for this travel is around £6.7 million for a 12-day visit. 

The space hotel, dubbed Aurora Station, will house six people at any one time – four paying passengers and two crew.

Orion Span was founded by Frank Bunger, now the CEO, and the company claims it’s mission is to ‘build and sustain human communities in space accessible to all.

Aurora Station goes into service immediately, bringing travellers into space quicker and at a lower price point than ever seen before, while still providing an unforgettable experience.’ 

Although the company intends to build the space station itself, it has yet to confirm launch details with any other firms.

It is believed the space hotel will be modular in design, making it easier to launch and add to at a later date.

Customers can able to take part and live like an Astronaut.

When the guests return home to Earth, they are going to treat them to a hero’s welcome.

Although pegged as a space hotel and offering all the bells and whistles for the guests, Aurora also serve other functions outside of hospitality. 

Aurora Station is incredibly versatile and has multiple uses beyond serving as a hotel.

Their architecture is such that they can easily add capacity, enabling us to grow with market demand like a city growing skyward on Earth.

The space station will be about the size of a large private jet’s cabin, measuring 43.5 feet long by 14.1 feet wide (13.3 by 4.3 meters) and feature a pressurised volume of 5,650 cubic feet (160 cubic m).

In order to ensure safety of guests on board the satellite, prospective customers will be subjected to a three-month training regime at an Orion Span facility in Houston, Texas.

The design of the craft means that EVAs (extravehicular activities) and spacewalks are unnecessary.
