A Space Hotel Is In The Works - You can relax in space much sooner than you ever dreamed. …if you have a ton of money.
One company is planning to build a luxury hotel for space tourists. A startup called Orion Span is hoping to launch a space hotel called Aurora Station in 2021. The CEO of Orion Span unveiled the idea at the Space 2.0 Summit in San Jose yesterday. A 12-day stay will cost tourists over nine-million-dollars.
Orion Span says that's "affordable." Space tourists have already taken eight trips to the International Space Station, paying from 20-to-40 million dollars each time.
Oh, well in that case…
The new space hotel will be made in Houston, and will be about the size of a private jet.
