Recently, a number of famous aerospace experts come to Beijing Aerospace City for participating in the design seminar about “edge of space tourism project”. Ouyangziyuan, the former chief scientist of Change Project, points out that the plan has feasibility for all and also it is a advisable, safe and economical way to realize space tourist flight. The discussions on overall design plan and further implement indicate the space tourist is open to ordinary people, who has been dreamed about it. What’s more, the era of China folk space tourism is coming soon.
“Edge of space tourism project” has been got technical support from a few of China space research institutions. The program uses super helium balloons carrying manned tourist cabin to help passengers arrive at the edge of space 99.85% atmosphere(40,000m height)away. During the flight, passengers can appreciate the space protean beauty, more than 1000 kilometers earth arc, space sunrise and sunset, also experience a short float weightlessness.

During the five hours flight, passengers can appreciate the peculiar sights on different height under the protection of tailor-made pressurized suits and sightseeing cabin. Besides, you will do a series of scientific experiments on the moon. There is no doubt that it will be a extraordinary experience for most of ordinary Chinese people.
The technician responsible for this project said they designed the sightseeing cabin and tailor-made pressurized suits to guarantee the tourist effect as well as the comfort. The project also set up multiple security measures to ensure the safety of all the passengers.
