[Extract] The arrival of commercial space travel and space tourism presents some unique challenges for travel medicine. While Accredited Space Agents are signing up travelers for the ultimate adventure on a Virgin Galactic Space ship for a mere USD 200,000,1 this has not been the first foray into space tourism. Destination Space: How Space Tourism is making Science Fiction a Reality provides a unique insight into space tourism and how advances in technology will ensure that expeditions into space become a genuine option for travelers. Destination Space contains an About the Author, a table of Contents, a Foreword by Sir Richard Branson, a Prologue, 22 Chapters, an Acknowledgments section, a Bibliography, and a comprehensive Index.
