Space rockets use an enormous amount of fuel – mainly for taking off. Modern spacecraft mostly use a refined form of kerosene and cryogenic liquefied oxygen or hydrogen peroxide. Jeff Bezos Blue Origin uses reusable New Shepard rocket to shuttle passengers to suborbital space (100 kilometers). Since its launch, the company has sent 31 people to the edge of space, some passengers claim to have payed as much as 30 Mio. USD for a trip. Such a flight causes a carbon footprint of around 330 tones per launch or about 10 tonnes per passenger.
Elon Musk also provides space tourism with SpaceX. It is sending its Falcon 9 to travel 400 km to the International Space Station.
The Launch of NASA’s Saturn V Moon rocket burned around 616 tones of kerosene, 17’000 tones of liquid hydrogen and 1’400 tones of liquid oxygen causing a carbon footprint over 10’000 tones of CO2.
