We've received a question in our Q&A regarding consumer space travel, and I wasn't sure whether such questions are acceptable and on-topic, or off-topic. I'm personally inclined to think they're off-topic, as they have little to nothing to do with (scientific) space exploration on their own. They would however be well on-topic, if this was a Q&A on space travel. But we do have Travel Answers, and unless the questions are highly scientific or technological in nature, questions about space travel starting with
how much? can as well be answered on Travel Answers.
Most relevant excerpt from our About page (all we really have at the moment on what's on/off-topic here):
Space Exploration Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for spacecraft operators, scientists, engineers, and enthusiasts. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about space exploration.
And here is my comment to the mentioned question, to serve as this discussion's starting point:
As this is a public beta website and we're still actively working on its definition, my comment will be possibly slightly argumentative, but I believe your question is off-topic, since it is inquiring about progress on space tourism and is not pertaining to space exploration, as per our About page. If you require a more insightful explanation, I suggest you start a new question on our Space Exploration Meta, where we could discuss how the wider community feels about questions regarding space tourism, if such questions are acceptable, or indeed off-topic. Thanks!
I want to see what's your take on this. Whatever we agree on should IMO also be included in relevant sections of our FAQ. Here's an active meta discussion on What should our FAQ contain?
