See pics: The world's first luxury space hotel, offer zero gravity living
Activities on board include taking part in research experiments such as growing food while in orbit - which guests can take home for a super-smug souvenir - and soaring over their hometown.
There's also zero-gravity ping pong, complete with floating equipment. Guests can have live video chats with their less-fortunate loved ones back home via high-speed wireless Internet access and, upon return to Earth, will be greeted with a specially arranged hero's welcome.While enjoying the thrills of zero gravity, the travelers will be able to float freely through the hotel, taking in views of the northern and southern aurora from the station's windows.
Aurora Station will be around 12 feet wide and 35 feet long - similar in size to a large private jet.
"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," says Bunger. Guests will complete a three-month Orion Span Astronaut Certification (OSAC) program before take-off. Orion Span has a team of space industry veterans who together have more than 140 years of human space experience. Orion Span is currently crowdfunding for investors who wish to own part of Aurora Station. At time of writing, there is $217,100 raised on its current SeedInvest campaign with fewer than eight days to go - which won't make a huge dent in what is surely a very costly project.
