Commercial space tourism will be a world-changing industry. Those who travel into suborbital space will come back as astronauts. This opportunity is a dream come true for people worldwide. Currently, there are more people signed up to fly with Virgin Galactic than there are certified astronauts in the world. This means that people worldwide will be flocking to New Mexico in droves to fulfill their bucket-list experience of flying into space, and they’ll bring family and friends with them.
Not only will Virgin Galactic’s first – and subsequent – flights place New Mexico in the international spotlight, generating an incredible tourism boom, but they will also pave the way for additional growth and expansion.
