On September 18, 2006, Anousheh Ansari captured headlines as the first female private space explorer travelling to and staying onboard the International Space Station. A serial entrepreneur, Anousheh is a co-founder and chairman of Prodea Systems. In 2004, Anousheh and her family provided sponsorship for the Ansari X Prize, a $10 million award for the first NGO to launch a reusable manned spacecraft into space twice within two weeks.

She followed her passion and founded the X Foundation to encourage advances in human space flight. Do you think space tourism should be promoted, and why? What do you want to listen from her at INK?
