Celebrating our 20th Year Anniversary

The Space Tourism Society (STS) was founded in 1996 as the world’s first society focused on the establishment and expansion of a vibrant, exciting and profitable space tourism industry.

Throughout 2016 we are celebrating the past two decades of continuous operation, expansion and accomplishments.

Imagine how much our society and industry will grow and diversify over the next twenty years.

We hope you will be part of this grand adventure.

Welcome Aboard!

Orbital Super Yachting


The Destiny – Orbital Super Yacht – Concept and Design by STS Founder and President, outer space architect John Spencer. Artwork by Jeff Coatney (

One of the Society’s long-term research, design and promotional programs is establishing an orbital super yachting community. Modeled after the ocean super yachting community, the goal is to migrate some of their vast wealth and prestige to orbital yachting and eventual space yacht racing around the Moon.

Here is the design of the world’s first orbital super yacht named Destiny. This beautiful 300 foot long space ship would accommodate ten passengers, six crew and many robotic service operators. She would be assembled in Earth orbit with several inflatable sections. The sails would collect solar energy.
