Space1 Singapore

Strict country laws make space expansion more challenging in Singapore!

As shown on the maps, the relatively tiny country of Singapore is selected for space tourism expansion to this side of the world. Space1's far southern Asia expansion into Singapore continues to move forward in 2015.

The first official Space1-Singapore meeting was held on Sunday January 11, 2015, with Space1's Singapore Advisor Master Lin Zi Lin 林紫琳 who flew from Singapore to Taiwan.

After a review of Space1 technology, the first agenda was deciding if a Singapore located spaceport is possible. The issue is extremely complex. Singapore has very strict laws and has outlawed gum and fireworks so it was decided that a continuing study is required to access all details regarding space tourism and launching rockets, thus preventing any country infringements.

Singapore is one of the world's major commercial hubs, with the fourth-biggest financial center and one of the five busiest ports. Its globalized and diversified economy depends heavily on trade, especially manufacturing, which represented 26 percent of Singapore's GDP in 2005.

In terms of purchasing power parity, Singapore has the third-highest per capita income in the world but one of the world's highest income inequalities. It places highly in international rankings with regard to education, healthcare, and economic competitiveness. Approximately 5.4 million people live in Singapore (June 2013), of which approximately two million are foreign-born.

While Singapore is diverse, ethnic Asians predominate: 75 percent of the population is Chinese, with significant minorities of Malays, Indians, and Eurasians. There are four official languages, English, Malay, Mandarin, and Tamil, and the country promotes multiculturalism through a range of official policies.
