How about a few nights in a space hotel?
That one day may be possible under a new agreement between Hawthorne-based rocket venture Space Exploration Technologies Corp., better known as SpaceX, and Bigelow Aerospace of Las Vegas.
The two companies announced Thursday they plan to offer rides to orbiting Bigelow habitats, using SpaceX’s Falcon rocket and Dragon spacecraft, which is designed to carry up to seven people.
Bigelow, founded by Budget Suites of America owner Robert T. Bigelow, is building mini space stations that expand in orbit so paying customers have access to space. They have launched two prototypes, and have future plans to launch a larger version.
