AT THE DAWN OF THE 21ST CENTURY, A REVOLUTION IN EARTH'S SPACE TECHNOLOGIES BEGAN TO UNFOLD. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF MAN, PRIVATE ENTERPRISE BEGAN TO BUILD A BUSINESS MODEL AROUND SPACE TRAVEL FOR THE COMMON MAN. tHEY STARTED SMALL WITH RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE TRIPS TO A SUBORBITAL ELEVATION. sOON AFTER, REGULAR DOCKING WITH THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION SET THE PRECEDENT FOR PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT OF OTHER ORBITING STATIONS. a RETURN TO THE MOON, TRAVEL TO MARS, AND BEYOND TO OTHER GALAXIES ARE NOW INCREASINGLY Plausible destinations FOR THE COMMON MAN.

THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO UNDERSTAND THE SOCIAL CONDITIONS IN WHICH PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO MAKE A VARIETY OF LENGTHS OF TRIPS IN SPACE AND HOW THAT DECISION CHANGES UNDER a variety of conditions.
