As it exists today, the space tourism “experience” relies on the thrill of just being in space for a select group of dedicated space enthusiasts. However, for this budding tourism industry to grow, it needs to appeal to a broader “mainstream” audience and to those who want more than a rocket ride and a view of the Earth. In this episode, we’ll talk to people who are working to build a more complete space tourism experience package that includes pre- and post-launch adventures, in-space activities and entertainment. Learn about your next potential vacation in space!

Jane Poynter
Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer, Space Perspective
Jane co-founded Space Perspective with Taber MacCallum. As Chief Experience Officer, she is charged with ensuring all Space Explorers have the most meaningful and memorable journey possible.

Jane was a member of the Biosphere 2 design team and original crew who lived for two years inside the sealed, self-sustaining habitat, the first prototype space base built and operated. She then co-founded and was President of Paragon Space Development that today has technologies on almost every human spacecraft in operation in the U.S. In partnership with the World Bank and United Nations, she developed the first carbon credit program using mangroves. She holds a patent for the world’s first self-sustaining habitat used in multiple space programs and bred the first animals to complete multiple life cycles in space.

Jane’s book, The Human Experiment: Two Years and Twenty Minutes Inside Biosphere 2, chronicles her time as one of the original eight crew members on that project. She is a fellow of the Explorers Club, and her Ted talk on global sustainability has been viewed over one million times.
