However "more" is dangerous, and requires more dangerous fuel, is more costly, takes more manpower to develop and handle, takes more years to design, needs more money in the millions and billions of dollars, needs a huge number of risky tests, and a long construction time plus danger with infinite risk factor. With more, more people will die.
Space1 does not follow this trend. We are not money hungry, money grabbing mongers. Simple, and less, is better. It's safe, costs significantly less, uses less manpower, development time is less, construction takes less time, systems can be more simple and more reliable, and people will not die.
As we move forward in 2016, after two full years of operations (Space1 was founded in January 2014), we are about to realize the biggest dream in mankind's history, and take our first space tourist into space using a paradigm of all new technology. Plus, we are the only space program in the world with the Safety Rocket.
