XCOR Space Tourism
XCOR is a NewSpace startup (now 16 years old) that is working on a tiny spaceship designed primarily for tourism. Considering that XCOR has the lowest listed price for a 6 minute ride in space, $95,000 $150,000 still makes it a luxury that few can afford. Eventually, space tourism may succeed but the price will have to be much, much lower, and provably safe. For now, it appears that space tourism will remain a niche market for a very priviledged few who have a deep interest in Space and deep pockets. The finanacial success and stability of these companies will likely depend on angel investors and private funding.
