A Walk In Space
What could really compare to walking in space?
This is an entirely unique opportunity – a historic moment that will never be matched. Relatively few astronauts and cosmonauts have ever left the confines of the space station, but all agree that it is an unforgettable experience.
A spacewalk is one of the pinnacles of human spaceflight. Even for cosmonauts and astronauts, the opportunity to leave the space station and float above the Earth is a rare and inspiring experience. Less than ten private individuals have done this. Just Guy Laliberté, creator of Cirque du Soleil; a South African tech entrepreneur; and a few others.
The first spacewalk was performed by Alexei Leonov in March of 1965. Since his historic mission, spacewalks have been conducted to complete the construction, and facilitate routine maintenance and repair of the space station, and to conduct scientific experimentation that cannot be performed from within the ISS. Today, for the first time, we can offer space flight participants the unique opportunity to walk in space.
- Spend approximately 16 days aboard the International Space Station.
- Join an elite group of adventurers who have walked in space.
- Enjoy an unobstructed view of the Earth while floating in space.
- Train for your spaceflight and spacewalk at the legendary Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia.
When you reach Earth orbit you are traveling through space at over 17,000 miles an hour, and are over 200 miles above the earth surface. The weightless environment means you are floating inside your spacecraft, which is a thrill in itself. Clients are flown on Russian Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station. For the next few years the Soyuz will remain the only viable way of reaching earth orbit.
While the highlight of an orbital spaceflight program is the spaceflight itself, an integral part of the experience and a very rewarding time is the training. We will ensure you are appropriately trained and prepared using state of the art facilities, simulators and methods.
Since the dawn of manned spaceflight, just over 500 people have traveled to space – we are pleased to be able to offer you the opportunity to be the next.
PRICE: $72 million.
