The UK’s first space tourism travel agency has opened – and it’s a world first
To infinity and beyond! The world’s first travel agency that wants to send you into space now has a land base – and that’s in the UK.
Launched by London based RocketBreaks, the agency has a full service to offer potential travelers, including coordination of flights, accommodation, meals and dedicated training programs to be in space.
The package also includes day trips to space, weightless experiences, and the option to board the Aurora station.
The sky is no longer the limit
Tired of 5 star hotels? What if you could enjoy a room with a view … of over a million stars? This is the goal of Aurora Station, the first luxury hotel being built for the sole purpose of accommodating space.
Californian aerospace company Orion span is the origin of the idea, with the opening of the Aurora station scheduled for 2022. The luxury space hotel was developed to orbit the Earth and will be able to accommodate four guests and two crew members for 12 day vacation.
There you can witness the sunrise 16 times a day and see the land and oceans from a whole new perspective.
Astronauts commonly speak of the “glimpse effect,” which presents the world on a silver platter and allows people to see the Earth as a whole.
Traveling in space will undoubtedly change your perspective.
But Aurora Station is not the only possible destination. Companies such as SpaceX are also developing opportunities for Travel to Mars.
How to book your trip?
First of all, you will have to join one of the training centers in partnership with RocketBreaks, in order to improve your body in optimal conditions for space travel.
Future space tourists can join RocketBreaks’ waiting list to be one of the first to contact when reservations open.
“Without a doubt, space is the future of the travel industry,” said RocketBreaks founder David Doughty.
“We have seen a gap in the market and, by entering early, we aim to make RocketBreaks one of the most respected agencies in the world of space travel,” he adds.
“We know for sure that there is enough excitement and demand for space travel, whether on a day trip, to experience the absence of gravity, to see the world in a whole new way or to stay in space. “
Galactic Virgo, founded by Sir Richard Branson, is expected to enter commercial service in 2022, with its founder planning to make the first flight in late 2021.
The company recently announced the development of more spaceships in addition to them.
As for the COVID-19 pass, nothing has been specified for the moment.
