'First luxury hotel in space' to offer 16 sunrises a day

First-ever hotel to launch in space by 2021

The stay at "Aurora Station" - AKA the flawless name for a spaceship horror movie - starts at $9.5m per person, or around $792k a night. Orion Span says it will open the first luxury space hotel in just three years. Even if the project does make it off the ground, booking a ticket will be hard for most people: A 12-day trip will cost $9.5 million per person, and reservations for the first four months have already sold out. Still, that's quite a bit less than orbital tourists have paid in the past.

Your next vacation could take you into outer space.

"The goal when we started the company was to create that innovation to make simplicity possible, and by making simplicity possible, we drive a tremendous amount of cost out of it", he told Space.com. However, when Aurora reaches capacity, Orion plan to extend the station by simply launching another station/pod and attaching it onto Aurora's radial hub to add extra room. The company - some of whose key engineering players have helped design and operate the ISS - is manufacturing the hotel in Houston and developing the software required to run it in the Bay Area, he said.

Rachel McAdams and boyfriend Jamie Linden welcome baby boy, report says
Rachel has reportedly been in a relationship with screenwriter Jamie Linden since 2016. A representative for McAdams hasn't responded to HuffPost's request for comment.

According to The Architect's Newspaper, the hotel will be the world's first fully-modular space station, if Orion Span's current timeline comes together. The Aurora Station can cater six guests.

He continued: "Our long-term vision is to sell actual space in those new modules". However, since the project hasn't been through, it seems highly unlikely that we will be able to join them in their upcoming space hotel.

A statement on Orion Span's website said: "Believe you were meant for a less than ordinary life?"

"Experience the thrill of zero gravity, watch the aurora borealis, grow food in space, or dive into our holodeck, for the world's only authentic astronaut experience".

And, as the company plans to launch the station in 2021 and host its first guests in 2022, you shouldn't have to wait too long before experiencing the exhilaration of zero gravity while seeing numerous sunrises and sunsets, as Aurora completes an orbit of the Earth every 90 minutes.
