The old dream of Man to travel in space is now becoming a reality with the development of “space tourism”, both “orbital”, benefiting from the new “taxis” and “hotels” in progress, and “sub-orbital”, a brief incursion on the border of the cosmos to experience the sensations of a launch and contemplate the Earth in weightlessness.
This activity raises many questions of all kinds, technical, legal, physiological, commercial … that must be addressed to understand the long-term credibility of this activity.
