What if there was a way? You could literally see everything, and experience it in a way that only 550 people in history have been able to so far. Space tourism is happening, a lot sooner than people think. You may have seen parts of this world, but you haven’t seen this world as a whole.
“Space is for everybody. It’s not just for a few people in science or math, or for a select group of astronauts. That’s our new frontier out there, and it’s everybody’s business to know about space.” – Christa McAuliffe (Astronaut)
Space travel is becoming increasingly realistic for many people who can afford it. Organisations are setting up transport links, training for your zero gravity experience, a space station hotel (the Aurora Station), and plenty of activities for you to experience in such a unique and unexplored environment.
Astronauts commonly talk about the “Overview Effect”. This is seeing the Earth as a whole, recognising it as one planet, with sustained life. The Overview Effect provides those fortunate enough to travel to space a change in perspective.
“It’s hard to explain how amazing and magical this experience is. First of all, there’s the astounding beauty and diversity of the planet itself, scrolling across your view at what appears to be a smooth, stately pace… no amount of prior study or training can fully prepare anybody for the awe and wonder this inspires.” – Kathryn D. Sullivan (Astronaut)
