This course introduces an emerging phenomenon in the tourism industry-future space tourism. The course is divided in two parts, with the first going through the status of the current industry such as technical and ethical aspects and the second part provides insights for understanding weak signals and future scenario planning in form of sustainability. At the end of the course, students will have gained an understanding of a new framework research tool used for designing a sustainable future in the tourism industry.
