However, the visionary entrepreneur does not refer to a figure that anyone can pay, but is talking about 9.5 million dollars for an experience of 12 days as an astronaut in formation “200 miles above Earth. At least, the internet connection is included in the package and should not be paid as an additional. The Aurora Station construction works will begin in 2019 in Houston (United States), since the company is private and has no relationship with NASA. The hotel is basically a cylinder that fits inside a rocket and can accommodate up to four passengers, plus two crew members who will be ex-astronauts.
