Suited for space
The Economist examines the physical requirements with space tourists with a look at NASTAR, a Pennsylvania firm that provides centrifuge training for Virgin Galactic customers and several ISS tourists. NASTAR’s Glenn King believes that, based on the company’s testing, more people could handle the rigors of suborbital flight than previously believed.
“NASTAR reckons that more than 90% of the population could handle a sub-orbital flight. Nor does Mr King see any reason why children as young as five or six could not go too.”
