The 12-day stay starts at US$9.5 million (RM36.8 million) per person, or about US$791,666 a night.

United States company Orion Span plans to build a space hotel so that people can spend a 12-day vacation in outer space at the new Aurora Station, a first fully modular space station and luxury space hotel! From 2001 through 2009, seven private citizens took a total of eight trips to the International Space Station (ISS), paying an estimated $20 million to $40 million each time.

Orion Span says the station will have suites that can fit two people for those lucky enough to be able to afford a couples' retreat in space.

It will orbit at an altitude of 200 miles above Earth. Orion Span has a team of space industry veterans who together have more than 140 years of human space experience.

It's not that the space station itself will be complicated in and of itself - according to Bunger, it's a single module, so once it's in orbit, no additional assembly will be necessary.

According to the company, Aurora Station will measure 43.5 feet long by 14.1 feet wide and feature a pressurized volume of 5,650 cubic feet.

The hotel is now being built in Houston while its software is being developed in the San Francisco Bay area. Upon completion of the training that would teach you about the nitty-gritty of living in the space, one would get an Orion Span Astronaut Certification, "a certification that may be possible to use with other space entities in the future", the website claims.

Orion Span is assessing potential funding sources to get the endeavour off the ground, but won't disclose how much it wants to raise for the project, a spokeswoman said.

Our long-term vision is to sell actual space in those new modules. The company requires an US$80,000 deposit, which is fully refundable, and began accepting payments yesterday.

"Seeing the Earth from orbit is a profoundly life-changing experience", Garriott told the publication. Arizona-based World View Enterprises Inc.is developing a fleet of high-altitude platforms, called stratollites, carried by balloons to the edge of space.

Orion Span's chief architect and operating and chief technical officers are former Nasa employees.

Interested guests will have to undergo a three-month training program to get themselves ready for the trip. "Upon launch, Aurora Station goes into service immediately, bringing travelers into space quickly and at a lower price point than ever seen before".
