High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Your Spaceflight Manual
is a non-fiction book by David Ashford and Patrick Collins that
investigates the possibility of a future space tourism industry. It
was first published in 1990. The book contains analysis of the
costs and benefits, the potential market and the safety factors of
space tourism, and gives rough designs for the types of space
vehicles and stations that would become necessary to support a
full-fledged space tourism industry. This culminates with a
description of a large space hotel (parts of which are spun to
generate rotational artificial gravity) featuring attractions such
as zero-gravity sports arenas and Earth-gazing observatories. The
book gives a rough timeline of predictions for the future of space
tourism, based on analogy with the history of commercial aviation.
