Going much beyond the moon in a hurry is out of the question too, as it would require something like a warp drive, which is still in the theoretical phase. (Scientists at the University of Washington say they’ve built the parts for a fusion rocket that could get to Mars in 30 days, though they have yet to test it.)
So space tourism in the near future will be limited to orbiting the Earth. It will be kind of like buying a tour on one of those antique trains that are fun to ride, but only go for a scenic ride through the countryside on a circuitous route. The fun is in the adventure of the journey I suppose.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t risks, one of which could be radiation.
Because space travel would start on Earth in a private spaceship, the Federal Aviation Administration has jurisdiction over setting up safety protocols to keep travelers safe.
The medical research arm of FAA recently purchased a high-performance micro-modular data center from Elliptical Mobile Solutions and Nor-Tech. EMS actually has quite a few impressive data center accomplishments listed on its website, putting computers in odd places where they are really needed, though this seems to be the first one designed to be able to head into space, or near space, as the case may be.
