Private Space Flights
 Story and photos by FIDDLE VIRACOLA
 

     I ran up a hill barefoot to lie in wet, green grass and look at clouds. Faces with fleecy big noses, Botticelli angels; and white cumulous baskets, eased by.

    My childhood imagination stretched to the blue with no beginning and no end.  I ached to be up there. Well, now
I can.

    The Park Avenue Armory was in flight, not only with Tom Sachs Space themed art exhibit SPACE PROGRAM MARS: backdrop, but with NASA ending its programs, private space flight time has arrived. The Armory’s packed, invited gathering, listened with awe and wonder. Those at the space helm include:

  XCOR AEROPSPACE, CEO is Jeff Greason. Chief Operating Officer Andrew Nelson is sales agent for space tourism on the Lynx rocket propelled suborbital flights.


   SXC:  SPACE EXPEDITION CORPORATION team:  Michael Mol-CEO; Ben Droste-Startegic Command; Harry Hulten-COO; Marten Elshove-legal finance.

General sales agent GSA.

   This pinnacle life event for the participant “Will launch in Curacao,” the Minister of the Economy Nasser Hakim stated adding with great pride Curacao’s Caribbean tourist treats.

   Astronaut Col. Rick Searfoss, former NASA Shuttle Commander and pilot talked from experience..  Being a consultant and professional speaker made the presentation clearer and heartfelt.

    If 18 to 84 years young and if you can easily climb aboard the LYNX,  you’ll view what only 500 people have ever seen. Leaving from Curacao with Col Rick Searfoss guiding, you’ll first go through the G-force thrust.

    Then the freedom phase follows. His four day training program requires an additional two day briefing, pre-take-off. Then you’ll be flying in the co-pilot seat with a real astronaut to the edge of space. WOW!

   What a spectacular evening. All felt like those who first saw airline passenger travel begin years ago. Now, we’re stepping into space history’s daring new chapter.

    A large reception followed with curious conversation in every corner. 

   Stellar couturier Andres Aquino eyed the required pressure suits design.

   Dr. Cynthia Schneider, former U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands, member of Brooking Institute and Georgetown Professor, shared thoughts with

   XCOR’S COO Andrew Nelson. Lorraine Cancro, the incredible director of The Global Stress Initiative held court. Betsy (Mrs. Budd) Schulberg was ‘a face in the crowd.’  And on and on…..

    “My mind’s sky is very rich. In meditation one sees so much,” a friend said after “Namaste.” “My inner travel doesn’t cost $95,000.” 

     "But," I answered "you can't feel weightless."
