Support 2: Reading

Textbook of Space Tourism
(2015 – present)


Support readers in their efforts to contribute to the development of safe, green, and affordable space tourism flights. As Robert A. Goehlich stated in the textbook’s preface “Whatever your reason for reading it, I hope that you will find that the money you invested in buying this textbook was well spent. The author’s royalty portion of what you paid for it flows into a planned space tourism research fund [now realized as Support 1] that has the purpose of funding students who wish to conduct research on space tourism topics that contribute to safer, greener, and cheaper space tourism flights” (2015, p. viii).
