Out of this World

Deposits are now being accepted for a future stay at the Aurora Station, the first ever luxury hotel in space. Slated for launch in late 2021, with its first guests stepping aboard in 2022, it will be an experience that is ‘out of this world’ – quiet literally.

“We developed Aurora Station to provide a turnkey destination in space. Upon launch, it will go into service immediately, bringing travellers into space quicker and at a lower price point than ever seen before, while still providing an unforgettable experience,” explains Frank Bunger, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Orion Span. “Orion Span has additionally taken what was historically a 24-month training regimen to prepare travellers to visit a space station and streamlined it to three months, at a fraction of the cost. Our goal is to make space accessible to all, by continuing to drive greater value at lower cost.”

During their stay, travellers will enjoy the exhilaration of zero gravity and fly freely throughout Aurora Station, gaze at the northern and southern aurora through the many windows, soar over their hometowns, take part in research experiments, such as growing food while in orbit (which they can take home with them as the ultimate souvenir), revel in a virtual reality experience on the holodeck, and stay in touch or live stream with their loved ones back home via high-speed wireless Internet access.
