Space tourism. The very term sounds like something from the far distant future. However, it is currently 2020, and this year could very well be the year in which the super-wealthy begin travelling to space as tourists. Both Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin seem to be on the cusp of bringing untrained, untested, but extremely wealthy individuals to space, if even for only a few moments.

SpaceX conducted a successful static fire of the Falcon 9 to be used for the Jan. 18 In-Flight Abort test.
