NSS AND SPACE ADVENTURES TEAM UP TO SUPPORT COMMERCIAL SPACE EXPLORATION
The National Space Society
and Space Adventures, Ltd. have announced a joint program to promote commercial
space exploration and to advance the day when humans will live and work in space.
The two organizations will work together on a number of space tourism initiatives
including joint conferences and events.
Tourism will be critical in creating the market for space settlement,
said NSS Vice President of Public Affairs, Christopher M. Pancratz. This
opportunity allows NSS to partner with the premier space tourism provider in anticipation
that mass-market space tourism will soon begin with sub-orbital flights to altitudes
exceeding 100 km.
The partnership is also intended to provide NSS members with unique benefits and
to bring space advocates closer to the next frontier through a number of Space
Adventures experiences. NSS members will receive discounts on select programs
such as terrestrial tours, zero gravity and supersonic jet flights, and sub-orbital
space flights. Space Adventures will also operate an NSS members-only tour.
