Now it’s easy enough to book a flight to anywhere in the world, the tourism industry has its sight on the next frontier: space travel. We visit space travel agency Space Adventures, meet a space tourist who travelled to the International Space Station, and get the closest possible to space travel on Earth: a zero-gravity flight.
Over the next decade, Space Adventures will arrange flights to space for more private citizens than have made the journey since the dawn of the Space Age. Our clients will fly on suborbital flights, on voyages to Earth orbit and on historic expeditions that circumnavigate the moon. Flights will leave from spaceports both on Earth and in space, visiting private space stations, and aboard dozens of different vehicles. By continually providing newly available space experiences and improving existing ones, Space Adventures will continue to lead the private spaceflight industry that it began in 2001 with the flight of the world’s first space tourist, our client Dennis Tito.
