I think that a prize should be offered for the first private space walk. I think thier is a real inudstry for the private sector in satilite repair and refueling.

I didn't have look into the topics concerning public perception and financial barriers today yet but I think your proposal is to be considered as an idea to be discussed there.

A privet spacewalk would be a special detail of a touristic space travel. To provide this possibility the supplier will modify the spacecraft by adding a cabin the pressure safely can be removed from to allow leaving the spacecraft and later the pressure can be reesatblished.

Market competition will lead to private spacewalks nearly automatically - no prize is required I think.

still a good idea I think, even if it is just to get things running (instead of walking)

Canadian Arrow is suggesting something called "Space Diving" which is a more extreme version of the Kittenger jump.
