Space travel has been possible for some time. Some people think space tourism would develop in the future. Do you think space tourism is a positive or negative development?
Space tourism has always been a fascinating thing for humans. Just like the other tourisms like ecotourism, medical tourism, sports tourism, business tourism, etc., space tourism has become successful in gaining the attention of people worldwide. However, whether it will be a boon or ban in the future has caused a heated debate. In my opinion, there are both positives and negatives.
The first benefit is the jobs that the industry is going to provide. To be specific, with more and more companies are taking interest into space tourism, a high number of jobs for the researchers, scientists, explorers, pilots, programmers, operators, and much other support staff will be available in next few years. Also, to make a space tourism business, shuttles, planes, and many other things will be needed. Therefore, the demand for the particular manufacturing unit will be there and so as the related jobs to it.
Another advantage of space tourism is going to be its ability to renew interest in space and space exploration. With renewed interest, financial backing will follow, and that will support further innovation in the industry and space exploration in general. In this case, the space program will help to know whether human life is possible on Mars or not and many other things in the future.
However, this is not a perfect picture. Every space tour involves a significant risk of catastrophic disasters which can result in a loss of human lives. So, the companies have to take care of all the safety concerns and make every prudent step to ensure the safe journey to space, with the extremely hostile environment of the space anything can happen. Moreover, the space industry also creates environmental problems with the launch of space shuttles, satellites, rockets, and other equipment. It also raises the issue of global warming in the world as there are many no recyclable resources used in space tourism programs.
To conclude, whether to develop the space tourism depends on how we see it and how the industry handles it. If the missions are carried with extreme precautions of safety and other standards, then it will generate a lot of advantages. On the other hand, if it will be held only for the fundraising and just for the pleasure of the eyes to see the universe, then it may end up with the wrong outcome.
