If Elon Musk is looking for a place to park that Tesla that he launched into space, he may want to invest in Aurora Station. Houston-based company Orion Span, Inc. just announced plans to open the planet’s first space hotel, with plenty of parking for flying roadsters.
Turns out that space is the final frontier not only for Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise, but for the hospitality industry, too. Orion Span is beating the eventual rush to provide space tourists with a place to lay their weary heads, as Bloomberg first reported. The luxury space hotel would orbit 200 miles above Earth, offering six guests 384 sunrises and sunsets as they race around the planet for 12 days at incredibly high speeds. It’s the perfect option (well, the only option) for those well-heeled Virgin Galactic travelers willing and able to spend $250,000 on a ticket to the stars.
