Suborbital space tourism is expected to grow in popularity

Space transportation technologies are very complex, with some systems requiring long development cycles of up to a decade. Thus, the European Space Agency (ESA) is looking for long-term trends and potential advances that respond to future programs being prepared. Developments and operations of the sub-orbital transport service must take into consideration the entire infrastructure, which includes vehicles, ground support systems, flight support systems and an international regulatory environment, which describes the processes and governs their development and operations to ensure to meet the requirements of the demands of the general public. The advancement of technologies is essential to further enable space transportation. Technologies such as reusable launch vehicle systems, in-orbit transportation and servicing technologies, and future space stations and habitats have the potential to advance next-generation space transportation.

The global suborbital space tourism market is witnessing numerous emerging players such as PD AeroSpace, LTD, Equatorial Space Systems, i-Space, OneSpace, Space Perspective and Suborbitality sro, all of which are highly focused on the development of transportation and the suborbital space. tourist platforms. These companies’ offerings include high-altitude balloons and reusable sub-orbital spacecraft. Along with these commercial companies, national space agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA) are also working with these emerging commercial space entities.

Sub-orbital reusable vehicles (SRVs) have gained attention for their benefits and created a new spaceflight industry. Comparatively, SRVs would be less expensive to develop and operate than orbital RLVs. A number of SRVs have the capability to carry humans, with current designs for one to six passengers, in addition to one or two crew members in some cases. The suborbital reusable vehicle segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period of 2021 to 2031. One of the factors contributing to this growth is the growing number of emerging companies involved in the development of these reusable vehicles that will perform suborbital operations. space tourism.

In the past, before the emergence of private space companies, the space industry was dominated by national space agencies around the world. Currently, with the advent of new space players, the dynamics of the space industry have changed. Moreover, it is observed that space agencies and private space companies are working together to advance their goals as far as the space industry is concerned. The advantages of space systems for mobile satellite communications, broadcasting, high-speed data transfer and commercial navigation are now recognized by commercial enterprises. In addition, there are many potential opportunities offered by emerging space activities such as space manufacturing, asteroid mining and space solar energy. These space activities are attracting significant interest from the private sector.

Space transportation includes sub-orbital flight or transportation, orbital transportation, and beyond-orbit transportation, which includes planetary missions. Currently, commercial space transportation includes launch services and cargo delivery to the International Space Station (ISS). Additionally, two companies, namely Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic, have announced their ticket prices for commercial space transportation services. These commercial space transportation services include one to the Moon and one to higher orbits from the International Space Station (ISS) or a launch vehicle. Other than that, commercial rides will be available for adventure travelers and astronauts on suborbital flights and to the ISS. According to NASA’s Integrated Landing System (BAA) announcement, Gateway to the Moon transportation will be in commercial service by 2024.
