ABSTRACT:
In general sense, tourism is act of travel for the recreational purpose from usual workplace. Still, people are travelling earthly places for tourism purpose. Since the beginning of human civilisation human beings have always been curious to know deciphering of space and travel into space. It was on 4 October, 1957, when the Russian Sputnik opened up the doors of prospects for mankind to fulfill their dream of space travel. Finally the day came, when the first manned space travel became a reality in 1961. The paradigm of space travels for recreational or pleasure purpose emerged during 60s, but the it took a long time to become reality, because space travel used to be for scientific purpose only. 28 April 2001 was the day when space was opened for general people for pleasure, to enjoy the adventures and excitements of space instead of scientific uses. This means that, now space tourism isn’t a hoax; it is reality. In general understanding space tourism can be defined as “the public member buys a ticket of spaceship and travels into the space for pleasure and returns back safely on earth after enjoying his holiday’’. The space tourism has enormous economic potential. It has a wide range of commercial aspects.
