The Business of Space Travel
Finding a market niche is hard to do with so many people pushing different products. One niche that has yet to be fully exploited is now being developed by a Chinese American company. They plan on selling space flights and space station visits. Their cheapest product includes a short sub-orbital flight taking you to the edge of the atmosphere. The exact price of the sub-orbital flight was not stated in the article “Space maybe the final frontier for Chinese Tourists” but it did mention a lofty 120,000 dollar down payment!!! Most people will never have that kind of cash but as the market increases and the demand stays constant prices will fall and consumer's reality may include the stars.
