KRLD (HOUSTON) - If you've ever wanted to feel like you're an astronaut, now you have a chance.

Orion Span CEO Frank Bunger says, Aurora Station, which will be built in Houston, will give you an opportunity to visit space. 

 "So, we're going to be 200 miles up. That places it in an elevation that's a little lower than the International Space Station," Bunger says. "We want to give people a little more detailed look at the Earth."

If you want to reserve a spot, you can pay a fully refundable deposit of $80,000 a person. The twelve day journey comes with a $9.5 million dollar price tag. 

Among the things the company is offering: You can experience zero gravity and participate in research experiments like growing food while in orbit.

"Guests will see an average of 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours," Bunger says. "We are also intending the Aurora Station to be a platform for astronauts from space agencies worldwide."

Bunger adds that they will support zero gravity research. 

"We will sell modules as the world's first condominiums in space."
