World’s First Luxury Space Hotel Is Now Taking Reservations

In the mood to escape this forsaken hellscape they call Planet Earth? Wish you could look down on all the plebs and haters at once? Tired of traveling by land, water, and air? If you’re stinking rich, there’s now a hotel just for you!

Introducing the Aurora Station, the “world’s first luxury space hotel,” floating 200 miles above Earth and currently accepting reservations, with plans of sending guests spacebound by 2022.

You’ll have the ability to see 16 sunrises a day, float in zero gravity, and be among the elite few who have looked upon Earth from space. The Aurora Station will host six people at a time, including two crew members. Fortunately, the 12-day trip and hotel stay will only cost you…$9.5 million.

“Our goal is to make space accessible to all,” Frank Bunger, CEO and founder of Orion Span, said in a statement. “Upon launch, Aurora Station goes into service immediately, bringing travelers into space quickly and at a lower price point than ever seen before.”

Aurora Station will give individuals the full astronaut experience, which includes an extensive three-month training program. Guests can float freely around the cabin, Skype with earthbound family and friends, and conduct science experiments, like growing their own food. That’s a helluva lot cooler than that keychain your grandma bought you on that family vacation to Florida.
