Background to study:
Increasing interest in orbital space tourism has been generated by recent developments of projects and organisations such as Excalibur, Galactic Suite and Bigelows Space Complex Alpha, as well as the Russian Orbital Technologies plans.
Although recent years have seen a number of excellent studies published, mainly focusing on suborbital demand, there has been, until now, few detailed studies available on the market demand for orbital personal spaceflight.
This new International Institute of Space Commerce study, created in close co-operation with the International Space University, focuses in detail on the market demand for orbital personal spaceflight, based upon key previous evaluations with fitting amendment factors as considered relevant.
