    The Future of Ultrahigh-End Space Travel

    Axiom Space, a Houston-based firm, intends to offer a 10-day cruise around the Earth in its luxury space station that will include Wi-Fi, custom-designed leisure suits, and a padded, cream-colored interior dreamed up by French designer Philippe Starck. The price of admission is $55 million, which means the market is small, admits Amir Blachman, Axiom's vice president for strategic development. Space start-ups are fighting for ways to stand out. As passengers sit back and watch sunrises and sunsets—all 16 of them that travelers will see every day as they orbit the Earth—Houston-based Orion Span will ply them with Space Wine, a specially formulated vino in packaging classier than the glorified juice pouches from which astronauts typically sip, says CEO Frank Bunger.
