Abstract:The Japanese Rocket Society's Rocket Symposia were held on six occasions from 1995 to 2001, where new technical and other essential topics were discussed and ideas were exchanged from concerned communities of rocket engineers, civil aviation and others in order for making general public "space tourism" happen. The objective of the study was to identify the issues that were never taken into consideration in expendable launch vehicle's design and operation, and is to figure out the goal of space transportation architecture, particularly from the viewpoint of "real" commercialization and large scale transportation between the ground and low earth orbit.

Considerations and assessments for achieving passenger safety, medical aspects, and regulations needed to allow civil airline-type operations, were made extensively together with necessary technical issues.
