Entrepreneur

When I asked Mr. Anderson what inspired him to become

an astropreneur (a term coined by Wired magazine),

he spoke about the impact the books 2001: A Space

Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke and Cosmos by Carl Sagan,

along with the movie Star Wars, had on him.

Born in 1974 in Denver, Colorado, Eric Anderson, a leading

astropreneur, is the president and Chief Executive Officer

of Space Adventures, Ltd. He is an outspoken advocate of

commercial space transportation, private space exploration,

and space tourism. He cofounded Space Adventures in 1997

with several former astronauts and leading visionaries from

the aerospace, adventure travel, and entertainment industries.

Anderson’s dream is to open the space frontier to everyone.

It is his hope that through the development of the suborbital

space flight program he helped engineer and the latest

mission to take private explorers to the International Space

Station, the company can benefit not only private individuals

interested in space travel, but also the international space program

as a whole. He shares the belief that space exploration

is vital to human progress and believes that by opening the

space frontier to private men and women from around the

world, we can greatly enhance technological development

and cultural understanding.

Previously, Anderson, a former NASA researcher, was the

Executive Vice President and cofounder of Starport.com, an

astronaut-endorsed space education and entertainment Web

site, which was sold to SPACE.com in June 2000.
