Take off into space with Space Expedition Curacao from a Space port in Curacao. In the first quarter of 2015 commercial spaceflights will be available from a special terminal at Curacao International Airport. The tickets are priced at $95.000/person which is cheaper than Virgin Galactic and Space Adventures that also offer suborbital space flights.
At SXC the space is the limit. A futuristic dream come true nestled in Caribbean paradise. What more can you ask for? Lynx II, a fully reusable space plane is able to perform four flights a day.
The passenger will
sit alongside the pilot in the exclusive
two-seat rocket-coupe. The trip then starts with a horizontal take off from the
runway. The take-off will be a once-in-a-lifetime
experience as you will feel the tremendous acceleration.
The space plane then goes through the sound barrier then a climb of two minutes ensues before the engines cut off at 192.000 feet above the earth. At this point you will experience weightlessness for a few minutes and the sky will be pitch-black. You will also see the earth’s curvature from the cockpit at this point, a place where only 500 hundred people have been.
After five to six minutes in space, the plane will descend back to earth. After the pull out maneuver, meaning that the plane is returning into the earth’s atmosphere you will literally glide back to Curacao for about 40 minutes. The flight will take about one hour.
SXC has already got more than 200 bookings from rich & famous would-be astronauts. Among those are Superstar-DJ Armin van Buuren and Victoria’s Secret model Doutzen Kroes.
NOTE: The first one-hundred passengers will get a three-night luxury stay in Curacao and training before the flights begin.
TIP: Don’t let the price impede you from having this mind-blowing once-in-a-lifetime Curacao experience.
