Virgin Galactic
Virgin Galactic officially announced that next year they will start the space tourism flights. The flights are scheduled once a week, with 7 astronauts flying at a time. There are already around 550 people who paid the modest amount of $200,000 to experience three days of training at Spaceport America, 62 miles flight and six minutes of weightlessness. That will bring $110 million to the company and huge emissions of black carbon (soot), alterations in the atmospheric circulation and ozone distribution, as well as possible increase in polar surface temperature by 1 degree Celsius, and polar sea ice reduction by up to 15 percent, if there will be over 1,000 space flight a year.
