Houston, TX (January 17, 2019) – Orion Span today revealed a first-look at the interior of Aurora Station, the first-ever luxury space hotel set to launch in 2021. Boasting oversized windows, roomy sleeping accommod ations and exciting amenities like zero-gravity ping-pong complete with floating equipment, Aurora Station will be roughly 12-feet wide and 35-feet long, equating in size similar to that of a large private jet. With brand new footage viewable here, viewers can experience for themselves what a trip aboard the luxury station will feel like, complete with stunning views of the sunset, as well as the northern and southern aurora.
“Aurora Station strikes the perfect balance of giving guests a once-in-a-lifetime authentic astronaut experience while maintaining an engaging and comfortable environment,” said Frank Bunger, chief executive officer and founder of Orion Span. “With customizable private sleeping pods, top-quality space food and luxury design details, Aurora Station is ushering in a new era of space travel, setting the bar higher than ever before.”
During a stay at Aurora Station, travelers will soar 200 miles above the Earth’s surface in Low Earth Orbit, or LEO, where they will be able to enjoy the exhilaration of zero gravity, 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 with their loved ones back home via high-speed wireless Internet access. The hotel will orbit Earth every 90 minutes, meaning those aboard will see an average of 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours. On return to Earth, guests will be treated to a hero’s welcome home.
For those who have resolved to splurge – or perhaps invest in their future in 2019 – Orion Span’s crowdfunding campaign is the perfect solution. Only a few weeks remain for those seeking the chance to own part of Aurora Station, becoming part of the future of space tourism. The campaign is currently live on SeedInvest, a leading equity crowdfunding platform, through February 8.
