Space Expedition Corporation
Space, and the possibilities for research it provides, offers opportunities to safeguard the future and welfare of our planet, everyday and everywhere. These days, space is no longer the exclusive domain of governments and institutions like NASA and ESA. It is rapidly coming within reach of private organizations and people.

This development starts with the eye-catching business of space adventure travel, but at the same time it will serve the goals of science, research and education. Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) strives to facilitate this exciting new global trend.

The world keeps getting smaller. Expanding humanity is stretching the Earth’s resources to its limit. Science is now ready for the next step: into space. Opening up new worlds for humanity, specifically with regards to science, education, economic growth, sustainability and leisure.


Description

You are in the best seat, up front with all the action, watching every move of the pilot. You are truly part of the mission, not just cargo. This also means that you will be given a suitable “call sign,” a pilot nickname. And, just like any other pilot, you will have no say in this at all.

At SXC, we understand that you did not travel this far to look at the Earth through a tiny airline window. Therefore, the Lynx cockpit canopy is an expansive 4 meters wide, making it the most impressive theater in the world (and beyond). It offers the widest view possible.

The Lynx design is simple, which makes it safe and economical. This enables us to offer well-priced tickets, and make space accessible to many more people than ever before. Thanks to its four powerful rocket engines, the Lynx does not depend on a mother ship to slowly take it to a high altitude launch environment. The Lynx the experience starts immediately, from T+1. Lynx Mark II reaches Mach 1 at T+60 seconds, and Mach 2.9 at T+180 seconds.

SXC Space Programmes

Founder Astronauts – the first 100 people to travel into space

The first programme is the exclusive Founder Astronaut Programme. Only 100 people have the privilege to be part of this programme. Founders will make the very first flights into actual space (100 km+), from Spaceport Curaçao. Many have already signed up for the Founder Astronaut Programme, including Victoria’s Secret model Doutzen Kroes and the world’s number one DJ Armin van Buuren.

It is still possible for you to join the exclusive club of 100 Founder Astronauts. Beginning in 2014, you can be one of the first 100 SXC astronauts to experience space flight on Lynx Mark II. By signing up for the Founder Astronaut Programme, you will enjoy exclusive extras, such as a complimentary optional training mission (for instance, the Desdemona simulator or L-39 Albatross jet), invites for events and trips (roll out party, test flights,), and a three-night stay in one of the finest hotels close to the Spaceport.

As soon as all 100 Founder Astronaut tickets are sold, SXC will organize a great space event, including a big raffle. The results will determine which Founder Astronaut will be our very first to travel into space, who will be number 2, 3, …….100. Founder Astronauts make a direct payment of $100.000 within seven days of signing the contract.

Future Astronaut Programme

The second SXC programme is the Future Astronaut Programme. After all Founder Astronauts have traveled into space, Future Astronauts are next. A slot number will be assigned after you sign the contract. This programme also includes a three-night stay in a luxury hotel. Future Astronauts make a payment of $50.000 within 7 days of contract signing. The remaining $50.000 can be paid a few months prior to the actual flight in 2014 or 2015.

Dining

For those of you who cannot wait until 2014, we offer Pioneer Astronauts the option to fly to 61 km high with our Lynx Mark I, beginning in the second half of 2013. Launching from Mojave Spaceport, you will have the privilege of experiencing the excitement of traveling on a spacecraft before everyone else. You can acquire your Pioneer Astronaut Ticket for $95,0000, with 50% to be paid upon signing the contract and 50% three months prior to your flight.
