Playing With Zero Gravity

However, past astronauts had warned them against wasting time in zero gravity. The space tourist careful preparation helped him remain calm during the flight. If things don’t go as planned, the plunge could get perilous.

Hamish started the training Blue Air flight crew only two months ago. The space tourism corporation was already in talks with UAE officials about establishing a spaceport.

During a meeting last year, the Ministry of Economy and Blue Origin agreed to look into the possibilities to establish a space tourism business in the UAE. They stated that it would include spaceports.

To expand its influence in the Middle East, Blue Origin recruited AzurX. This was a Dubai-based advising and investment firm, as its regional consultant. Mr Harding travelled to Blue Origin’s planned space station, Orbital Reef, from a UAE spaceport one day, in addition to embarking on suborbital trips.
