The World’s First Space Hotel
For $9.5 million, you can stay at the Aurora Space Station. Don't worry, the price also includes the launch into space.
The Aurora Space Station is currently set to launch in 2021, and should be hosting its first guests by 2022. But you'd better hurry, because the wait list is now open for reservations and is getting longer by the day.
To reserve a spot, you must deposit a mere USD $80,000. The cost of the trip itself starts $9.5 million, which is "far below what others have paid to go to space" according to the Aurora Space Station website, and does include the launch to get to Aurora Station as well as the stay. This is a great deal, because it's very hard to arrange your own launch into space.
Your deposit is fully refundable in case you change your mind, or if you realise there might be better things to do with $80,000.
Up to six people may stay at Aurora Station at any one time, and there are suites for two available if you and your significant other would like to find out if your relationship can survive a trip to space.
The Aurora completes an orbit every ninety minutes, making for many beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and also making your twelve day stay rather short.
You may also wish to do research at Aurora Station, which offers to subsidise the cost of hosting researchers from "qualifying institutions" for those interested in studying microgravity.
If you are unable to make the trip to space this time, you can rest assured Orion Span, the company behind the Aurora Space Station, will continue to pester you; "We will not rest until our shared destiny in the stars has been realised" is part of their mission statement.
If you want to socialise with astronauts from worldwide space agencies, see the Aurora Borealis from space, and sample space-grown food, you can reserve your spot today!
