Eric Anderson on Space Tourism in the Gulf

In an article in, Eric Anderson, President of Space Adventures, talks about the coming spaceports in the UAE and Qatar. He also seems confident they will have a sub-orbital vehicle in the "next few years."

It has been reported, however, that the Russians may not be developing the Explorer suborbital craft after all. So is Mr. Anderson still hoping the Russians will come through or is he shopping for another suborbital vehicle.

I did like this comment:

While flight prices may sound astronomical at the moment however, Anderson claims that prices will be “affordable to the tens of thousands level in the next 10 to 15 years.”
