California-based firm Orion Span has announced that first-ever luxury 'space hotel' will be in orbit within four years، and able to welcome passenger within five years.
But a stay won't come cheap. The firm is charging space tourists $9.5 million (£6.7 million) for a 12-day visit، as the Daily Mail said. 
The experience will allow guests to test out zero gravity and gaze upon stunning views of Earth، as well as witness an average of 16 sunrises and sunsets a day.

The project was announced yesterday at the Space 2.0 summit in San Jose، California.
The space hotel، dubbed Aurora Station، will house six people at any one time - four paying passengers and two crew.
Orion Span was founded by Frank Bunger، now the CEO، and the company claims it's mission is to 'build and sustain human communities in space accessible to all.'
'We developed Aurora Station to provide a turnkey destination in space،' Bunger said at the summit.
'Upon launch، Aurora Station goes into service immediately، bringing travellers into space quicker and at a lower price point than ever seen before، while still providing an unforgettable experience.' 
Although the company intends to build the space station itself، it has yet to confirm launch details with any other firms.
It is believed the space hotel will be modular in design، making it easier to launch and add to at a later date.
