Branson’s flight a historic moment for space exploration and space tourism, Danos tells CNA

President of the Cyprus Space Exploration Organisation (CSEO) George Danos told CNA that Richard Branson`s space flight on Sunday constitutes a historic moment for space exploration and for space tourism.

Danos, who in the 1990s was working with Branson, said that we are experiencing the beginning of privatization and commercialization of space and noted that space tourism could pave the way for important steps to protect our planet.

“As we embark on this new journey and get a view our planet from above, without borders, with a fragile thin atmosphere this journey won`t be just a journey for exploration, entrepreneurship and tourism, it will also be a journey of introspection and appreciation of our planet and possibly the beginning of important steps to protect our planet,” he told CNA.
