Looking for a crazy vacation? Look no further than this space hotel. In 2021 this hotel will launch and in 2022, it will be ready for people.This hotel named the Aurora station will be the first hotel sent to space. It’s a pill shape that’s 43.5 feet long and 14.1 feet wide. It will start to be built in 2019 in Texas.

However they can’t just send you to space! First you have to go through a three-month-long Orion Span Astronaut Certification (OSAC) program. This program will teach people how to move in the weightless environment along with the basics of spaceflight and orbital mechanics.  

Orion Span isn’t just plan to put hotels in space.they have other plans too, Such as two inflatable space habitats.that will be connected to create housing for up to six people at a time. Instead of crowding the already cluttered skies with additional man-made objects, the company hopes to transform sections of used rockets floating in space into luxury hotel rooms. It looks like when it comes to vacations we’re taking to the skies!
