This paper aims to investigate the spending limit of space enthusiasts in Turkey. To determine this, space tourism activities are divided into 3 sections as earth-based space tourism activities, suborbital and orbital space tourism activities. Data were collected through one of the biggest open-air events held yearly by space enthusiasts. In addition to that, researchers reached social media groups which are solely focused about space tourism. 1041 questionnaires were collected which are available for analyses. According to additional variables about interest on space tourism, the sample of this research is highly interested in space tourism although they have limited budget for space tourism activities due to currency difference in Turkey and international market.
