Many people see tourism as travelling, relaxing, getting new experiences and having a good time. However, considering it from different perspective, tourism can be developed and be related to other things. Current research is dedicated to one of the types of tourism - scientific tourism. After researching and defining the word "scientific tourism", it has been considered as a new type of tourism. The classification of scientific tourism depends on the mission of that tourism. The result has shown that there are two types of scientific tourism: expedition and individual. The modern classification of these two types of scientific tourism is considered as introductory or educational. The research has shown that Kazakhstan has enough resources to develop scientific tourism. As an example, Baikonur Cosmodrome has been considered for future scientific and space tourism.
