AbstractA policy to develop space-based solar power stations would lead to the development of a range of major new space technology capabilities. Among these, fully reusable launch systems capable of low costs through large-scale operation would be developed. One result of such a development is that passenger space travel services are likely to grow rapidly. In order to consider how far they may grow, the precedent of 20th century air travel is instructive: having reached 1 billion passengers in 2000, it grew to 2.8 billion passengers in 2011. Based on this, a growth scenario leading to 1 billion space travel passengers in 2100 is considered. Among these 1 billion passengers, the paper considers the possibility that 1 hundred million passengers will travel to the lunar surface in 2100. Although this may seem ambitious, the paper considers possible problems, and suggests that there are no obvious bottlenecks. The scenario outlined would create a huge number of job opportunities in industrial sectors in which Japan has particular expertise, notably all forms of high-reliability mechatronic and aerospace engineering. As such, this scenario seems desirable as a national strategy, at a time of high unemployment and severe lack of new industries, which is having very damaging effects on Japanese society.
