Advanced space tourism

Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)


The Moon is likely to be one of the most exotic and expensive tourist destinations of the latter half of the 21st century and the early part of the 22nd. For those embarking on a trip to the Moon your transfer flight will probably begin from an orbiting habitat in low Earth orbit (LEO) and will last between 3 to 5 days, depending on the launch window and propellant consumption. On arrival in lunar orbit you will be transferred to another orbiting module where you will be briefed by a tour guide representative and issued the equipment necessary for your surface stay. Alternatively, you may have chosen to remain in the module and observe the Moon from orbit, in which case you will need to become familiar with your home for the next few days.
