Space Experience Economy (SEE) Seminar Series

It’s a Transformational Time for Space Industries

The space industry worldwide is in major transition. The retirement of the U.S. Space Shuttle fleet, accelerating international competition, the emerging “New Space” industry with billions of dollars in contracts/investments, and the completion of the first decade of the space tourism industry have all caused many to ask what is next? Where are the opportunities and jobs? 

Space hotels, orbital super yachts and lunar resorts are already in the design stages… Bigelow Aerospace has two inflated test modules in Earth orbit leading to the world’s first private space station.  Space Adventures is planning a tourist lunar flyby …Virgin Galactic, Blue Origin and XCOR Aerospace are planning to fly sub-orbital passenger flights… and SpaceX and Orbital ATK are now routinely launching their own rockets on re-supply missions to the International Space Station (ISS)! 

Earth-based space themed resorts and attractions are also in development. 15+ million people annually visit space attractions, museums, Space Camps and NASA visitor centers …and several space movies and TV shows are now in pre-production. The 2015 blockbuster movie The Martian generated  $600+ million in worldwide ticket sales.  

Hundreds of millions of people from around the world want to have space experiences, and that creates new opportunities not imagined even a few years ago. 

The Space Tourism Society presents the Space Experience Economy (SEE) Seminar Series to address these rapid transitions taking place.
