And yet, despite the boom which led to the space exploration industry in the middle of the XXth century, the desire of flying and the funds declined so much that they disappeared from the list of current concern's of the government agencies and they embarked in the field of the private entrepreneurs who, despite their noble purposes, do not have the necessary funds to develop this industry. But there is someone who seems to make tremendous progress in his race to make space travel a commonplace thing. His name is Sir Richard Branson, as you already know, the holder of a corporate group which includes 360 companies: Virgin. But this story is not about Branson. Here you will find out how one of Branson's concerns can give birth to the first spacecraft of the mankind, worthy of bearing this name, a space ship which will be able to carry tourists into space, and which, why not, can turn into the foundation stone of new industry.

Rycroft, Faculty Member, International Space University e-mail: [email protected] isunet. edu Building on the foundations provided by the International Space Station, now partially constructed and already in use in low Earth orbit, what will be the future directions of human spaceflight? This was the key question discussed from many viewpoints - technical, entrepreneurial, governmental, legal - at the seventh Annual Symposium held in Strasbourg, France, early in June 2002. Many ideas on the "whys" and the "hows" of our future exploration of the final frontier were put forward in a stimulating environment. The unique perspective of the International Space University (ISU) - namely an interdisciplinary, international and intercultural perspective - enhanced both the presentations and the discussions. More than 150 people attended the Symposium, including the current members of the Master of Space Studies class who are attending an 11 month course at ISU. They are young professionals and postgraduate students who develop in-depth some part of the broad Symposium theme in their parallel Team Projects. Their final reports will be completed at the end of July 2002, and will be published independently. 1 Beyond the ISS: The Future of Human Spaceflight Keynote Address: A Summary The Need for a New Vision E.
