If you are planning to travel to space sometime, is time to start thinking how much you will pay for the seat if you have money enough , and to trying to make decisions about the company to select to make the big leap
The competition between firms that want to make private trips to the space is becoming stronger. The billionaire entrepreneur Jeff Bezos spaceflight company Blue Origin performed last Sunday another unmanned flight of its New Shepard suborbital vehicle from Blue Origin’s West Texas test site.
The private space firm Blue Origin which is founded by Amazon ’s Bezos , carried out another test flight. During the launch, Ariane Cornell, Business Development Manager at Blue Origin, said: “Another spectacular test mission. Everything looks nominal from here.”
After launching, New Shepard reached an altitude of 347,485 feet (105,913 metres), which is widely regarded as the boundary line for space. On board the spaceship was Blue Origin’s dummy astronaut, which the firm has named “Mannequin Skywalker”
Skywalker, a lucky dummy pilot returned to the planet in one piece.
New Shepard is a rocket-capsule combo that Blue Origin is developing to fly passengers and scientific experiments to suborbital space and back. Both elements are reusable. The capsule lands with the aid of parachutes, and the booster comes down to Earth for a vertical touchdown, using engine firings to slow its descent, as SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rockets do during orbital flights.
The Bezos rocket has before seven test flights. The most recent one came in December with the debut flight of “Version 2.0” of the crew capsule, which features extra-large windows.
The company is also developing a heavy-lift orbital rocket called New Glenn whose first flight is targeted for 2020, and its longer-term plans include a mysterious vehicle called New Armstrong, which Bezos has mentioned but not elaborated upon.
Bezos has said repeatedly that the company aims to help get millions of people living and working in space.
The first self-paying tourist in space was the American Dennis Tito, who in 2001 paid 20 million US$ for an 8-day trip to the International Space Station with a Soyuz TM-32 rocket.
The first commercial trials in suborbital space travel to fly beyond the Kármán line were conducted in 2011 by Virgin Atlantic and 2012 by SpaceX. Despite some catastrophic accidents these initial tests demonstrated that the concept of commercial high-volume space tourism was technically feasible, experts said.
Virgin Galactic sold 700 tickets worth $250,000 each since 2014. This has created an awareness of the market potential of space travel for consumers. Most companies in the space industry have refocused to the consumer market, which has rapidly taken off.
