Space Travel Theme Parks
All the interesting facilities -- spacecraft fabrication, test chambers,
training facilities, laboratories, and mission control -- will operate
behind glass walls in a theme-park atmosphere. If we do it right, these
facilities will pay for themselves by providing entertainment (and perhaps
a bit of serendipitous education) worthy of the gate price.
I envision a ride-through facilities tour at each site, along with
visitors' galleries where people can watch and learn for as long as they
like. Each facility will have a knowledgeable staff to brief visitors and
answer questions. We'll offer discount packages and focused briefings for
school groups in all age categories.
Since mission support functions will be distributed all around the
world, we'll need many of these theme park facilities for real-time
monitoring and control during the flight. That opens opportunities for
ventures as modest as a small entertainment center in a casino to a
full-sized major theme park.
Incidentally, if anyone would like to develop a business plan for any
part of this and put together a business to do it, you're welcome and
encouraged to do so. There's a lot more to the Artemis Project than space
