Becoming part of history
Merit Travel and its partner Space XC takes travel to the next level, going further, higher and faster. And you can experience all of this as a co-pilot, not just as a passenger.
Our partner SpaceXC is contributing to the development of outer space travel. It is not simply a joy ride! The missions have the opportunity to take part in international scientific research while having a unique experience at the same time. Your venture into space will certainly be a life-changing experience and only few have gone before you. All of them have attempted to capture their experience in words. None of them fully succeeded. It is too impressive, too moving: seeing earth... from space.
By Exploring Space You Discover Earth
The spaceship, the Lynx Mk II, willbe operational in 2014 and will reach low orbit space at an altitude of 103 km crossing the official frontier of space.
The Lynx spaceship carries only two people; the pilot-astronaut and you. You’re in the midst of all communications, watching every move of the pilot: you are truly part of the mission, not just luggage.
Every astronaut that has previously witnessed space travel will tell you this it is nothing short of a “life changing experience”. The earth, with the atmosphere as a thin blue layer surrounding it, is an unparalleled beauty, seen from this perspective.
The entire flight has taken almost an hour and will last a lifetime of memories.
Earth as only 500 has seen her before
At an altitude of nearly 60 km, the pilot switches off the engines and the parabolic flight begin, during which the crew experiences weightlessness for a couple of minutes.
The spaceship eventually reaches its maximum height of 103 km. At this point you are crossing the official frontier of space; a place where it is completely black, despite the sunshine. From here the Earth’s curvature is clearly visible from the cockpit. An experience only a few have experienced before.
