It's official; the space tourism began on April 28, 2006 with the American millionaire, Dennis Tito's trip, to the International Space Station (or ISS Station Alpha). He became the first space tourist.

Living in space will soon become a reality. People will be able to travel into orbit or suborbital flight and stay in space hotels. Tourists will sport (not serious) or relax in a bar with panoramic views of the Earth. At the moment, going on vacation in space is very expensive.

Space shuttles, rockets, vehicles that are reusable, reliable and inexpensive must first be developed. This concept is already well developed in Japan and the United States. Indeed, extensive research has been conducted over the past decade. For example, it is clear that 72% of Japanese are willing to spend about a month's salary for such travel. Unfortunately, it remains little known in France.

Even the ESA (European Space Agency) gives little importance to this subject. Space tourism has begun to flourish and many companies undertake the design of future space hotels. This trend is likely to create more jobs and will generate new phenomenon. People are ready to leave right away, especially in the United States and Japan.

Many companies already have their designs and plans ready to build the first hotel. However, it is too expensive for the present moment. So people must build vehicles that allow them to go. There are only private launches to orbit satellites, thanks to the Space Shuttle, the Ariane rocket launchers and a few others.

The vehicles could be reused like the Space Shuttle and would reduce the cost of launch, if the designers were out of business one by one, and the space adventure might be pushed to the back to sleep for a few decades, thus reducing them to mere satellite launches.

Fortunately, there is a market that will generate much more than these satellites, and manned travel. A market study in the United States and Japan shows the idea of space tourism becoming increasingly popular.

Thus, the industry will start to turn around its business of transporting passengers. But this idea of space tourism is not very popular in the space industry and a future in space for the military or purely commercial seems distant.

Virgin Galactic is an agency in the United States that also offers sub orbital flights. A few of the employees who shared a passion for astronomy and tourism decided to create the first space transportation company in Europe, from countries like France, Italy and the Netherlands.

Founded in 2004, the company is the first airline to offer French and European trips in space. The site (head office and base-off) is located on French territory in Bergerac in Gironde (33), which gives it a central place in Europe. Pioneer in the field, it has excellent opportunities for development. The main goal is to offer excitement to is customers on land or in space in order to discover the effect of weightlessness.

The company aims to transport 1000 people per year which would allow a return on investments for several years and thus make sub-orbital flights available to many people as possible. The company has "in space" 15 people on board the shuttle Space Trip from15 April 2006 and brings to life the travel experience of weightlessness on earth for more than 100,000 people since its inception.
