The BBC has done a Fast Track on Space Tourism. The small documentary involves Carmen Roberts being sent to North America. She goes to Mojave where she describes the winning of the Ansari X-Prize, later mentioning Virgin Galactic.

There is an interview with Dick Rutan who shows her around, he also discusses “rocket powered aeroplanes” and looks at XCOR Aerospace.

There is also an impressive video of Interorbital’s (IOS) Sea Star Sustainer engine. This is followed by a meeting between Carmen Roberts and the IOS CEO, Randa Milliron. Randa explains a little about how IOS make their money, expanding on how they teach at universities and also do some acting amongst other things.
