STARCHASER ESA REPORT EXECUTIVE SUMMARY



May 2008

Towards the latter half of 2007, Starchaser Industries successfully
completed and delivered a Ä150,000 ESA contract entitled 'Study
of European Privately-Funded Vehicles for Commercial Human
Space Flight' which was part of an ESA initiative to identify
European space tourism ventures, evaluate their feasibility, and
assess their associated technologies.

Starchaser's work upon the contract gave rise to a number of
useful documents, which has helped refine the Starchaser
business plan and technical roadmap that will enable the company
to progress towards its first commercial space tourism launch.

ESA has now published Starchaser's Executive Summary
