Gerald L. Dillingham (au)
In 2004, the successful launches of SpaceShipOne raised the possibility of an emerging U.S. commercial space tourism industry that would make human space travel available to the public. The Fed. Aviation Admin. (FAA), which has responsibility for safety & industry promotion, licenses operations of commercial space launches & launch sites. To allow the industry to grow, Congress prohibited FAA from regulating crew & passenger safety before 2012, except in response to high-risk events. This report evaluated FAA’s: (1) safety oversight of commercial space launches; (2) response to emerging issues; & (3) challenges in regulating & promoting space tourism & responding to competitive issues affecting the industry.
