Proxima-B is an extra-planetary resort, capitalizing on the replicable experiences of luxury resorts on earth and translating the pristine pools, expansive views and lush lounges to alien landscapes. As space tourism develops - offering suborbital space flights, or vacations on luxury space stations, Proxima-B visualizes the next step - human inhabitation of other planets. There have been over fifty planets identified that may potentially support life. The closest of these planets - Proxima Centauri B, an exo-planet orbiting the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri - is thirteen lightyears away, and as technology develops there will be no shortage of potential planets for human inhabitation. This resort, placed in untouched landscapes offers a vacation free from the troubles of the earth with climate control and terraforming, the environment has been altered to be perfectly suited for human leisure. Scan the promotional posters and postcards to see a real-time AR view of the resorts as they have settled into the landscape of Proxima Centauri B.
