I am doing preliminary market research for a space tourism project. Could you please fill out this survey regarding the prospect of taking a visit to space? Since I will need to sift through the information, please post anything other than survey responses in this thread. Thank you. -enigma ********************************** Space Tourism Survey Space tourism has always been a concept filled with possibility and excitement. However, only two people have ever paid to go into space. The cost of these two space tourism stints were somewhere between 15 and 20 million dollars. Keep this fact in mind as you answer the questions below. 1. Would you be interested in taking a 3-24 hour trip into space as a tourist/vacationer if money was not an issue? If no, feel free to answer any other questions you feel are valid. 2. How long, between 3 and 24 hours, would you like the trip to last? 3. If money were an issue, how many years’ savings would you be willing to spend on such a trip? 4. How long would you be willing to train for such a trip? 5. Rank from 1 to 9, with 1 being the most appealing, and 9 being the least appealing, the following space tourism activities. If there is another activity you can think of, add it to the list and then rank out 10 instead of 9. ___ - viewing the Earth (in general) ___ - experiencing "weightlessness" ('flying', floating, tumbling) ___ - eating in zero gravity conditions (playing with floating food) ___ - stargazing without Earth's atmospheric interference (telescope) ___ - real-time communication (audio & video) with people on the Earth ___ - experiencing launch and atmospheric reentry ___ - viewing specific areas of the Earth ___ - high resolution photography of the Earth ___ - taking a “space walk” ___ - _______________________________________ 6. Other than essentials (food, water, clothing, pressure suit, helmet), what would you want to bring with you on the trip? Thank you for your participation.
