S.P.Korolev RSC Energia is an official partner of the 12th
Economic Forum to be held on September 4-6 in Poland. The
Forum, which provides a framework within which RSC Energia
coordinates the preparations for and the holding of a seminar
on The Future of Space Tourism, is organized by the Institute
for East European Studies (Warsaw, Poland).

The objective of the Economic Forum is to expand political
and economic cooperation between European countries, to
establish relations of partnership in business and culture.

It is not by chance that the subject of space tourism was
selected for discussion in one of the seminars – the number
of people interested in private space flight steadily grows.
The successful missions of the first tourists – D.Tito and
M.Shuttleworth – provide an inspiration for many others
to realize in practice their interest in space research.
Commercial space flight is no longer an exception from the
rules, and is considered as an independent line of commercial
activities in space.
The participants’ papers will be dedicated to different
aspects of space tourism ranging from the history of the
development of this line of space flight to the investment
attractiveness of space tourism projects.

The setting-up of the seminar is coordinated by pilot-cosmonaut,
the head of RSC Energia Flight Test Division Alexander Alexandrov.
The seminar will be hosted by the Head of the RSC Energia
International Division, Candidate of Engineering Science
Alexander Derechin.

and the Future of Space Tourism seminar can be found on
