Abstract

With the widely anticipated launch of commercial suborbital space travel in the near future, space tourism is finally set to come into its own after decades of frustration. This article outlines the history of space tourism. The need for a number of spaceports on worldwide distribution is outlined and the suitability of the Great Karoo in South Africa for such a custom-built spaceport is suggested. This would have significant possibilities for the development of tourism and socio-economic upliftment in the region. - (AJC)
