The US House of Representatives approved legislation on Saturday that would make regulations easier for companies looking to provide rides on private spacecraft. The vote for HR 5382 passed 269-120, which allows it to now go on for Senate approval, and finally to be signed by the President. This bill would streamline space tourism, allowing passengers to fly at their own risk, instead of forcing operators to take on excessive risk and insurance.
