Post Airbus plus space shuttle: budget space flights planned   Posted on: Tue Dec 17, 2013 10:26 am

Swiss Space Systems (S3), a European group of companies, is hoping to "democratise access to space" by launching flights from a base outside a beach resort on Gran Canaria.
Maspalomas is a popular tourist destination, best known for its golden sand dunes, bars and foam-party discos. But with first flights beginning in 2020, visitors may soon be able to indulge their inner-astronaut here too.
