VIENNA, VA -- Esther Dyson thinks that space is the next frontier for technology and that the Internet may be old hat.
If her recent efforts to lend her tech industry high profile to the space race are any indication, Dyson is changing her focus up to the stars. She has invested in tourism firm Space Adventures as well as Zero Gravity, a firm that offers customers a few minutes of zero gravity flight.
Other investments include rocket engine maker XCOR Aerospace and Constellation Services, both makers of low cost rocket boost solutions. Dyson will give a keynote address this June at the Aspen Institute's 3rd annual Flight School forum, highlighting the challenges that space entrepreneurs face.
