The new career of Space Tourism.

At present, the conquest of space is no longer a single space race, there are several underway, for the moon, for Mars, for the constellations of satellites and one of those space races is for space tourism.


The first space tourist was Dennis Tito in 2001 and in the last 12 months we have seen a series of events in this race, in July 2021 the rocket plane of the billionaire Richard Branson's company Virgin Galactic reached the limits of space and we also saw the Blue Origin suborbital rocket from the space company of even more billionaire Jeff Bezos.

In these two cases, the ship made a suborbital flight that meant reaching 90 or 100 kilometers in height and returning to earth without giving it an orbit, but we have also seen Japanese tourists in the international space station and on board From a SpaceX Dragon ship we have seen two trips to Earth orbit, Inspiration 4 in February of this year and the 17-day trip of the Ax-1 mission in April.

In both cases, tourism was mixed with scientific activities, all of this in a single year and it will go further, because a new competitor is added to the race for the space tourism business and it is Chinese, through the company CAS Space dependent on The Chinese Academy of Sciences is currently developing a series of reusable rockets and spacecraft to send tourists beyond the Earth's atmosphere on short-duration flights.

As explained by its president and founder Yang Yiqiang quoted by the chinadaily media, its bet is similar to the Blue Origin although the flights may be much cheaper, since they plan to charge about 300 thousand dollars, the Chinese rocket will be powered by five engines having weighing about 70 tons.


The capsule will have a height of 3 meters and a diameter of 3 meters with 35, as well as four large windows so that space tourists can calmly observe the landscape, it is expected that the flight will take place without pilots or controllers, it would be a ballistic flight.

The capsule would have a capacity to carry up to seven people at an altitude of more than 100 kilometers, which would place it above the Karman line, which is considered the limit where space begins.


The trip will allow space tourists to observe celestial bodies and experience weightlessness for a few minutes due to the free fall of the ship, those responsible want to carry out the first test flight by 2023, let's hope that these Space tourists are doing.
