It is the establishment of a mini space station in low earth orbit (LEO) for private passengers, the first space hotel. It is conceived as a non-permanently occupied shelter for tourists and the crew periodically.

The initial phase will involve the development of 2 modules, with a bioinspired design, for 2 passengers and 1 crewmember. In the second phase, for a total of 4 passengers and 2 crew members, the station will be extended to 5 modules: 3 room modules, 1 service module and 1 multiservice module, toilet and spa. All modules will have artificial atmosphere, thermal control and solar collection control systems for the generation of electricity.

The hotel will be located in a low Earth orbit, at an altitude of 450 kilometres, where it is still under the protection from the radiation provided by the Van Allen Belts, and permits faster access and return to the Earth. The tourists will be accommodated in the hotel for between 4 and 6 days, orbiting the planet once every 90 minutes, and therefore enjoying 16 sunrises and sunsets a day.

The objectives of these ministations include short-term tourism (around 1 week), private research into microgravity and the development of a communications and remote observation platform.
