The high-profile crash of the Virgin Galactic spacecraft has some assuming space tourism is on-hold. Maybe not. Both the technological and the perception-of-risk problems can be fixed.
As for technology, we know from "We have a problem, Houston," the situation mandates leveraging the right resources.
As for risk, the lawyers can guide businesses in space tourism how to position and package it. After all, mountain-climbers and skiiers die all the time. So? Those two commercial niches are still making a bundle.
What lawyers know is this. In "Game Theory: A Very Short Introduction," Ken Binmore points out:
" ... rational people can have different attitudes to taking risks."
Shrewd lawyers can describe the risk in the usual waivers in a way that reassures those who tend to walk on the wild side and simultaneously lower liability for the space-tourism businesses.
On this one, lawyers and public relations have to bundle together their expertise.
