Whether you are 8 or 98 you can become an astronaut, viewing the curvature of the earth and experience weightlessness in an amazing sub-orbital rocket which flys past the Kármán line – the boundary of space which is 100km (62 miles) above ground level. We offer a choice of an action-packed adrenaline pumping experience or a space flight that is just as exciting but in a calm environment of a space capsule suspended under a balloon.
Sub-Orbital Space Travel
Sub-orbital is a term you’ll be familiar with if you keep up to date with the pioneering space activities of leading space organisations such as Virgin Galactic, Blue Origin and Space X. Their sub-orbital vehicles allow you to view the curvature of the earth safely and experience true weightlessness. RocketBreaks have partnered with experts in sub-orbital space flights to create a range of experiences for you.
We have two options of sub-orbital balloon flights.
The first near space experience will lift off in Europe and take you to the edge of our atmosphere.
From your seat, together with three other passengers and two pilots, you will will be able to see the curvature of the Earth and the thin blue layer of the atmosphere that protects us. View the surface of our amazing planet through a supersized window.
Your flight includes an overnight stay in a luxury resort and transportation on the day of the flight. We will also give you a personal video of your experience so that you can treasure it for a long time to come.
The second balloon flight option takes off from the USA. You will fly to 100,000 feet (20 miles above earth). This is high enough to witness breathtaking views of the curvature of the earth against the backdrop of the universe. You will stay up here to enjoy the view for almost 2 hours. The total flight lasts 5-6 hours.
Each flight carries six passengers and two crew members. The passenger capsule is has facilities such as a mini bar and lavatory. In-flight real-time social media communications are available to share the experience with friends and family below.
Take a flight on Virgin Galactic’s Spaceship Unity to enjoy the most awe inspiring view. There are a few hundred future astronauts signed up to this flight. Join Virgin Galactic, who will host three days of preparation and training onsite at Spaceport America in New Mexico before flying to space.
Your space flight is propelled by WhiteKnightTwo which takes off and climbs to an altitude of 50,000 feet, at this point the pilots release Spaceship Unity from WhiteKnightTwo and engage the rocket motor sending you into space.
In space you can leave your seat for several minutes and experience weightlessness in your custom made spacesuit, before flying back down to Earth.
Enjoy your sub-orbital flight with the New Shepard space vehicle by Blue Origin.
You’ll travel to the New Shepard launch site in West Texas two days before your flight to take part is some pre-flight training, which includes mission and vehicle overviews, in-depth safety briefings, mission simulation, and instructions regarding your in-flight activities such as operational procedures, communications, and manoeuvring in a weightless environment.
Guests are welcome to come along to the training centre.
During the flight you will reach speeds of more than Mach 3. And once in space you can release your harness to experience weightlessness, enjoying the most beautiful view thanks to the largest windows in spaceflight history. After rejoining your seat, you will descend back to Earth. Blue Origin uses parachutes and thrusters to reduce its speed and land safely back in Texas.
