Space Tourists: Do humans belong in space?
40 years ago the first man went into space. Nowadays some people believe that the era of space tourism has finally arrived. They want to build space ships which enable ordinary people to go to space.
Sir Richard Branson is one of those people. He will launch the first galactic airline in only a few years. It certainly is a big gamble as the project costs a lot of money and it takes place an unusual environment, but he is willing to take this risk and enable ordinary people to fullfill their dream of “visiting” space and experiencing this breathtaking view.
This documentary deals with the history of space tourism and its early starts in the 1969 as well as its future. Also a closer look will be taken at the project of Virgin Galactic.
