Final count down

‘As of January 1, 2014 the long held dream of mankind to enter space and thereby observe our beautiful earth from high above will become reality for the larger public at the beautiful Caribbean Island of Curacao.’


‘Space Expedition Curacao (SXC) envisions realizing a Commercial Space Line and Space Port on Curacao International Airport. SXC will serve both the commercial needs of everyone who wants to travel into space, as well as the needs for scientific research and space training.’

More information can be found on the official website of SXC (click here). According to Martin Schröder, founder of Martinair, the Dutch have always been pioneers in the field of air travel: “The step to commercial space travel SXC is about to take, in my opinion, is at least as important as the introduction of the jet engine was in its time. An ou-of-the box initiative in the tradition of the Dutch’ strong entrepreneurial character. I am looking forward to being part of aerospace history once again!

According to FOX News Curacao is a well kept island paradise secret: “All you need is a bathing suit and a carefree attitude because the Curacao beaches are hot and the music is cool.” FOX News calls Curacao one of the hottest destinations in the Caribbean, a hidden treasure.
