Is Space Tourism Realistic?

Space tourism is still in the very early stages of development and testing and it could still be a while until we see our first Space tourists. But this hasn’t stopped over 800 people already purchasing their ticket with a hefty price tag of $200,000 (£125,000).

Yesterday saw a huge set back in the space tourism race when Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShip Two crashed during a test run killing one pilot and injuring the other. Has this shook the confidence of those who already have their tickets? What does this mean for Virgin Galactic, a company hoping to pioneer a new industry of space tourism?

Tell me what you think. Is it realistic to believe that Space Tourism is the future of travel? Would you purchase a ticket to be a space tourist?
