Space tourism is a luxury service and only the wealthy could reach it, however in the future it will “discount” and maybe, dream “astronaut” of many visitors will become a reality.
Space tourism is no longer the monopoly of the rich
Attractions of space travel lies in the way that paragraph is the experience on this mysterious universe, not the destination. And that is why the experience of this journey will be taken to a new level when it comes to the pleasures of travel.
Currently, the fare for traveling the galaxy in Virgin Galactic ship is 170,000 pounds (equivalent 350.000USD, about 5.3 billion), and only the Hollywood A-list stars, billionaires can the tour to be the planet’s most expensive. However, most likely in the next 20 years, the price of this service will be reduced to 7,000 pounds (equivalent to 225 million), lower than the first-class airfare for the present time, according to British newspaper Metro said. This estimate is made by the analysis of the former astronaut, Donald Thomas, who perform tasks in the shuttle Columbia and Discovery.
Thomas said in The Metro and Luxury LaunchesÂ : “I hope in the next few years will begin Virgin Galactic sub-orbital expedition first in space, allows visitors to see the curvature of the earth from way 85 miles away from the screen dark night sky outer space. ”
When it comes to space travel, then from here to 2030 period is not too long. For those who are “moderately rich”, will be worth the money after waiting for a decade and a half. We can only rely on Virgin Galactic and SpaceX to turn it into reality.
