Challenges Facing the Space Tourism Industry: 

Challenges Facing the Space Tourism Industry International Space Station Access: What is the future for tourism aboard ISS? Vehicles: High-reliability, quick-turnaround, low-cost space vehicles are not yet available. Launch Facilities: Availability, and suitability for new vehicles, may be problematic. Private Investment: Inadequately informed investors are very reluctant to take financial risks.

Helping Industry Meet These Challenges: 

Helping Industry Meet These Challenges Advocating industry needs in the interagency space policy process Encouraging investment through expanded space industry data

Space PCC:
