Will space tourism devastate our planet? By @tim.braxton
Tim writes with great insight about the impact of space travel on the environment. In his journal Will Space Tourism Devastate the Planet, he cites various scientific magazines, looking at the likely cost in CO2 emissions of a rocket flight. With one launch equivalent to 395 one-way transatlantic flights, or driving 73 cars for one year, Tim argues that humans need to “clean up their own house first”. He ends his writing with a link to another journal which outlines 10 ways individuals can reduce their CO2 emissions.
