XCOR Space Expeditions offers flights int the Lynx Mark I, reaching the edge of space, an altitude of 60 kilometers. The Lynx Mark II reaches the internationally recogniszed boundary of space, more than 100 kilometers above Earth. The flight path for both types of spacecrafts are similar and equially exciting.
Unlike all other previously developed spacecraft, including the Space Shuttle, XCOR Lynx is equipped with an independent takeoff and landing system. The ship’s four revolutionary rocket engines can be shut down and restarted in-flight at any time. There are no disposable carrier rockets or landings at sea. Lynx simply departs from the runway at any spaceport, and glides back to a runway on return. You will find yourself sitting next to the pilot. The four engines start. Your space voyage has begun.
