The first-ever luxury space hotel is expected to launch in 2021 -- and is now taking reservations.
Orion Span is a company with the mission to "build and sustain human communities in space accessible to all." Their space hotel -- called the Aurora Station -- will orbit 200 miles above the Earth and offer rooms to space travelers.
A 12-day stay aboard the Aurora Station has a starting price of $9.5 million -- and you can reserve your room today with a refundable deposit of $80,000. (RT)
