Space tourism is travelling to space for many reasons such as leisure, adventure so as to satisfy the curiosity of people and satisfy their spirit of adventure. The modern space environment is no longer a mystery to humans for the reason that technological advances have enabled space exploration, with new discoveries being made from time to time. This essay analyzes space tourism in the emerging market by looking at how safety will play a role in its development, if it hinders the development of the technology, some issues that arise that are related to safety that may not be present in the current aviation system and if I would go to space if given a chance.
Safety will play a crucial role in the development of space tourism because it will reduce the risks that come with the new technology. Space transportation comes with a lot risks to human beings whether they are trained astronauts or tourists who have this spirit of adventure. Safety will help in the identification of the dangers that are associated with the space tourism and the best strategies that can be used to mitigate the effects of the risks. For instance, the creation of an insurance regime to cover the risks that are associated with the exploration will help in the development of the space tourism. Space tourism hazards are widespread and are easily forgotten because it is easy to get lured in the marketing that are associated with this activity and ventures which are aimed at serving the emerging market. The risks that come with space tourism can have detrimental effects on those who take part in the exploration and other living organisms that are affected with carbon that is released by vessels used in space tourism. The risks that are associated with space tourism will be eliminated and their effects mitigated if a safety program is put in place and mechanisms put in place to ensure that it is effectively implemented.
Space tourism does not hinder the development of technology but promotes it for the reason that the spirit adventure by tourists leads to the discovery of new things which are used to transport them and make them comfortable in their activities. The technology that is used in space tourism vehicles is inspired by the designs that are used in the making of the modern jets. Modern technology has been employed in the vehicles that are used for space tourism thus showing that space tourism promotes the development of technology. Nascent testing which mostly relies on novel technology is being used in the aviation industry to improve service delivery to space tourists. Nascent testing allows stakeholders to demonstrate to the general observing public the flightworthiness and the safety of the vehicles that is used by qualifying its design processes as well as providing vital information to the operation reliability and tolerance of the vehicle.
There are several issues that arise that are related to safety and are not present in the current aviation system, for instance, rules and regulations that control the effects of space tourism to the environment have not been fully implemented. Black carbon emitted by the vessels that are used in space tourism, for instance, rockets has adverse effects to the surroundings because they affect living things in the atmosphere.
I would go to space if given an opportunity because of my curiosity and the spirit of adventure. The space is made up of many features which cannot be observed while on the surface of the earth and thus exploration will help be to increase my knowledge on things that make up the universe.
