Have you always dreamed of setting sail for the stars as an astronaut? You may soon get your chance, provided you have some serious spare pocket change

Orion Span is a U.S. company claiming to be on track for opening the world’s first luxury space hotel in just three short years. Known as the Aurora Station, this hotel is projected to launch into orbit in 2021 and be ready to entertain guests in 2022.

The hotel will be able to host four guests and two crew members at a time. It will float above Earth at a height of 200 miles and orbit our home planet every 90 minutes, allowing guests to check out 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours.

In order to book your stay, you’ll have to undergo three months of training to prepare for life on the station. Once aboard, you can expect treats like zero-gravity ping pong, a flight over your hometown, and plenty of top-quality space food.

What’s the catch? Each ticket will cost $9.5 million, so start saving your pennies now.
