Aurora Station will be the World’s First Luxury Space Hotel in orbit 200 miles above the Earth’s surface. Frank Bunger, the CEO & Founder at Orion Span (the company behind Aurora Station), joins us to discuss this incredible opportunity for dreamers to achieve the Authentic Astronaut Experience.

Frank is a veteran technology executive and entrepreneur, with a background across several industries, including software, hardware and manufacturing. In this episode he describes Aurora Station which is set to launch in 2021 with the ability to receive guests by 2022.
