Space Tourism

•, by Paul Adair
 Winners from around the world will be invited to a four-day space camp in Orlando. Of those, twenty-two will be selected for a short trip into sub-orbital space. This promotion is only one example of the rapidly expanding trend of space tourism, in which we non-astronauts are given a chance to experience space travel first-hand.

Space tourism is not new. The United States Space Camp has been in operation in Huntsville Alabama since 1982. This organization offers educational programs for students and adults, with more than 600,000 having attended the camp. The programs include experience in flight simulators, building and launching model rockets, and simulated space missions. However, there is no actual space flight involved.
