Introduction to "Major Players of the Space Tourism Industry"

In this episode of the Lifestyle, Travel & Technology podcast, the hosts Alexander, Garry & Nikki take you on an imaginary trip to space discussing the new emerging industry of Space Tourism. The hosts discuss all the major players within this industry like SpaceX, Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin and compare differences on what they plan to offer tourists and at what price.

There currently are 3 different kinds of space flights dedicated to space tourists, Orbital flight, Sub-Orbital flight and Lunar flight. Tune in to find out what the differences are between these flights and learn more about one thing the hosts all find fascinating - Low Earth Orbit Space Hotel. Some of these companies have already asked for capital and in return, tourists either get a reservation spot on the waiting list or bracing to start the journey. Some of these space tourism company's are even developing a hyper-sonic flight that reduces a 12 hour flight to just 90 minutes.
