Stephen Attenborough, Virgin Galactic talking with Dr Patrick Dixon (Chair) at Google Zeitgeist.

Virgin Galactic space vehicles will take people onto short trips into space in the ultimate tourist adventure but also raising questions about use of resources in a world concerned about global warming.

The space craft can take 10 people on two trips a day. Carried up to around 70,000 feet under a conventional plane, the space vehicle is released and then shoots into space in a short 90 second burst of rocket fire. The fuel is rubber pellets and nitrogen dioxide - both stable when separate so the engine can be turned on and off.

The space craft re-enters the atmosphere at a slower speed than the Nasa space shuttle, and from a lower height. It flies down to land at a conventional airport using own wings and without sustaining massive temperature issues that have made Nasa expeditions so challenging.

Cost: $200,000 for a trip lasting a few minutes in space itself. All seats for the next year or two are fully booked.

Raises all kinds of questions about sustainability, environment and global warming.

So do you think that space tourism is ethical or is it a waste of resources that should be banned?
