Commercial applications of space tourism

Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)

Abstract

Space tourists, like their terrestrial counterparts, will use discretionary funds to travel and visit destinations that remove them from everyday life. Regardless of whether they pay for a suborbital flight or a trip to Titan, in each case spaceflight participants will be paying for the experience, an experience which will almost always require a significant infrastructure to support and which only the commercialization of space can accomplish.
